    In this case, it's really a bug that IDE is using a busy wait where it
    should be using a sleeping wait. It's a bug, plain and simple. To
    wrap the bug into "a spec" somehow seems wrong to me, especially when
    it would be far better to report the problem as a bug.

    Sure, specs make suit-wearing people happy, but that doesn't mean that
    they're appropriate as a bug reporting method. 8)
