Note one thing that isn't apparent in ths discussions. The LM317 requires
a minimum voltage difference across it to work properly. This is 2V, I
believe, as is many other fixed regulators. So if you have 2V across the
chip, and 1.25V across the current seetting resistor, that's 3.25V munimum.
if you go below this, it may not work. I don't have any experience with
this current reg circuit, but with V reg, if you go below th 2V, the chip
just drops out of regulation.
