It's hard to know exactly how to file an actionable bug since many of
the most serious issues are either network or serverside problems.

At one UDS I did take time to report bugs on every issue I could
identify, both clientside and otherwise, but that was a couple years ago
at least.  Many of those issues still existed last UDS.

I wonder if UDS's usage model (tons of users on a not totally reliable
wireless network) is outside the scope of what they're able to test?
