    I will be sure to hunt you down to help debug when someone reports
    that once every few weeks their multi-day simulation gives incorrect
    results :-)

    This is one of those cases where the bug is going to be a huge
    issue to people who actually hit it, and since we know about the
    problem, knowingly shipping something in that state is unforgivable.
