that's for sure, but they're people too ;). so they /can/ make
mistakes. they cannot plan for every possible outcome or environment,
therefore they make a "best guess/guesstimate" of what *could* happen.

this doesn't mean that nothing will go wrong, it just means that most
things within of possibility have been taken into account. and sooner
or later, even improbable things will happen, its just a matter of when 
(heat death of the universe doesn't count ;P)

correct me if i'm wrong, but it /was/ mentioned in the BTS (of which
the page helen pointed to has info on how to look stuff up i believe).

and i totally agree with you, check your own stuff first, it could be
user error. you do better on that count than i do ;).
