     "This bug seems like it could have been caught sooner with
     better testing and code auditing. Is there a reason you don't do
     more of that? Here are some suggestions for making testing
     easier and more robust."


     "WOW, this is a REALLY DUMB MISTAKE. How could a bunch of people
     who are *so smart* make such a _boneheaded_ blunder? It confuses
     me because I'm used to a development culture that puts software
     quality *first*. I'm not commenting on anything, just asking
     a question."


"In what environment does that sort of thing happen? Is it really
that important anyway? How should I view this? We'd have considered
that serious in DOS, but maybe it's a detail here. Looks like we need
more testers? That's me! OTOH, it seems that zsh/linux code is just
naturally more robust, maybe?  Seems so. Is this 'bad' or just par for
the course, I wonder. So many added layers!  Must it be so? Perhaps
I need a complete change in how I view a code defect."
