Which, of course, it was.  But there's no substitute for real-world
testing.  We do not have nearly the variety of hardware setups, existing
partition layouts, or unusual requirements here that users do.  At some
point, we really do just have to let the new code loose on everyone and
get the broad testing that's supposed to be one of the hallmarks of free
software.
