While cooking the last couple of days, I'd periodically hear a "whoosh!" from my camp stove, but the flame didn't noticeably change, so I didn't overly worry about it. But today the frequency was such that I got concerned, and put my ear down closer to it. It turned out there was a leak in my jerry-rigged adapter, and there was a small flame coming out of the solder joint. I disassembled it and am using my last two butane canisters until my plane leaves (hopefully) in a week.
