So you were you able to successfully resolder the pin & remove the solder blobs?

Looking at that picture; I would say many if the pins in the upper row needs re-soldering.
Perhaps all solder points. The solder look "sugared" and would not last long.

I would say that is a defective board.  :smiley

CrossRoads: I soldered that loose pin in place but I left the blobs on there, they don't seem to be causing any trouble and nobody actually seemed to think they should need removing anyway.
