It might be working 'correctly' but is not perceived as such by users. 
I've seen regular complains from users since the release stating that 
their browser or code editor got closed in front on them without 
warning, on a machine they had been using for years with the same 
configuration and software without issue.

They might be getting short in resources but in practice they never 
experienced a sluggish system due to it and just see the feature as buggy.
