You get the same with electronics engineering.  While you're
prototyping, and it's a rat's nest of components cobbled together on the
bench, it works.  But try and put it in a box, and make it neat, and it
stops working.  Or it gets faulty lid syndrome - it only works when the
lid is taken off, so there must be something wrong with the lid...  ;-)

We've all had one of them, haven't we?  (Waits for Gene to chime in.)
