Nope, sorry.

Well, we do hope people will test code before it goes production.
This was something that no one tested. And I mean *no one* tested.
The code for Windows clients is obviously tested a lot, but the
Linux client code doesn't get tested by people as much. Steve
tests things, but he's only one person. I'm hoping this will change,
but until it does then sometimes accidents will happen.
