macbook pro shocker...

My macbook pro has given my hands an interesting tingling feeling since the day I bought it - which stops immediately on disconnecting the PSU. It seems to be much worse if I have an unpowered USB device like a mouse plugged in - presumably this helps to form some kind of contact between the various bits of the highly conductive aluminium chassis.

My theory is that unearthed swtched mode PSUs seem to be the issue here - yes they are suitable for use in just about any country with AC but the earth pin is there for a reason in the UK is it not?
