Not quite.  It was the combination of cockpit error with a general
expectation of failure of the build.  Without the latter, I (and
presumably Eric too) would have sought out the actual failure more

Cockpit errors will continue to happen.  Therefore the expectation of
failure should be reversed.  I'll be looking to see how to do this.
