So, you've stared at some diagnostics for hours, and can't see the
problem. Yeah, the *actual* problem is usually something else entirely.
The average ILUGger knows this, thinks the chance is pretty slim of
seeing something you couldn't, and moves rapidly on.
Particularly since (as Niall's toothmarks on your person indicated)
nobody has the faintest idea what the symptoms are, or what you've
already tried to do to sort things out.
