I installed the package, which was automatically upgraded since I have
the previous version of the module which you had to build yourself.  My
network immediately failed.

At that point, I had to walk across campus where I could plug in to a
wired ethernet, identify the problem, rebuild the module, forcibly
install the new package, and now place the package on hold until a fix

The bug bites unsuspecting people by disabling their network.  It could
even thus be of severity "critical".
