programs to step in and fix them.
I guess I'm not at all surprised that some applications behave so
poorly... this is what tends to happen when you stack layers and layers
of abstraction on eachother.
One of the reasons I find programming _so_ entertaining is because I am
challenged by the task of creating the most stable and incredibly
efficient solution I can think of. I guess the same is not true of
