Sure, it's easy to find problems in anything when you search back far enough
into the past. The fact that it's so easy to find problems so *recently* is
what I was pointing out. And your personal anecdote doesn't change the fact
that it is broken.

Fair enough, I agree. The fact that these problems are showing up so quickly
in the field means that we haven't done enough testing prior to release. If
you can condense your problem scenarios into something we can easily reproduce
and subsequently include in the test suite, then we can attack these problems
and move forward.
