Obviously you have never seen a system dll badly replaced during a patch because another process locks it, or it has been duplicated in the dllcache, or whatever other nasty trick.
I've seen such things happen already. But I must say that it tends to happen more often with Microsoft products than other products develloped for Windows (except those of Microsoft partners). Maybe because they know Windows too well to use common sense when making a development.
