Well, if it's broken we should certainly try to fix it. That said, even if it's not broken, I think three failures in 10,000 is too high for production use... at least if the failure causes a panic at boot time. Particularly a panic at boot time when new users are trying to boot the installer for the first time.

I can't see why. One in 3,333 times, the test falses positive, the machine reboots, and comes back up running normally.

There's a big difference between "panic" and "reboots and comes back up running normally". Which is it?
