I'll take every few hours, but I'd prefer "in under 30 minutes".  Getting
warm and fuzzy feelings when trying to prove a negative with something that
takes hours to run is very difficult.  Let's say you have a case which
reproduces in 8 hours 50% of the time.  To reach 99% confidence level in a
fix I'd have to run it for 8 * (50 log: 2) hours without seeing it
reproduce, right?  That's nearly 2 days; it could take weeks to fix :-(


best, Eliot
