I tried to reflow the board, with extra flux added, to see if that would help. It didn't, so I decided to try and recover the LEDs from the board... And I learned why they use temperature-controlled hot-plates for this:

Yes, that is melted plastic from one of the LEDs...

I guess that's a failure... Good thing I have excellent ventilation in my kitchen.
