I have a circuit that has a LM3278 dual regulator. The input is +18V and the output is +5V. There are supply issues, so I changed the FETS from FDS6982AS to Vishay SI4936BDY and the startup waveform looks odd. The regulator will not always start up. I am attaching the waveform of the input and output voltages.  What is the interpretation of the attached waveform.?   

Thank you very much for your help and support.
