That does sound sensible. Have you filed a bug? Seriously, please do -
the only way these problems get fixed is if the people experiencing
them report them. If there's already a bug reported, subscribe to it.
That bumps it slightly up the priorities list. Bugs with more
people marked as affected get more attention.

I'd leave out the bit about it being a day you couldn't afford to lose,
though - just keep any report down to what happened, and what you
expected to happen.
