I don't want to spend the entire VDD on it.

But so far, Geoffs test is the only live(-ish) test of -trunk 
I have heard of in a looong time, so I'm treating the failure(-ish)
of the test very seriously.

If I had more test-reports and they said differently, I would be
more inclined to discount Geoffs data point, but having *only* that
data point, I cannot ignore it.

The issue I want us to talk about is "How do we gain confidence
that 4.1 isn't going to be a disaster when we havn't tested it?"

I *also* want to talk about 4.2/5.0 and the future, but right
here and now our biggest problem is that we don't know if 4.1-R
can be released or not, and that should be our top priority.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
