This is not just good natured banter. It is a poltergeist that lives in all 
x-talk programming, going way back to early HC.

I absolutely KNOW that I have had scripts fail, even though they are 
perfectly well constructed, and then just fix themselves while I am fiddling with 
them. This even though I am CERTAIN that I changed nothing pertinent during 
the fiddling.
