For 99% of users the answer to that is no.

You have read the code right?   ( :-) joke!!!)

I'm sure the wiki will help on this front, but I'm afraid that the
complexity of myth and the underlying technologies it deals with are
vastly beyond the capacity for most mortal users to understand.

Okay I'm getting on a bit now and the old grey cells ain't what they
once were, but I've been using and debugging myth for several years
now, but I still get lost in the labarynth of C++ objects.

I don't think there is anything wrong with raising faults and getting
them recorded in track, I appreciate that someone has to vet and
priorities them all, but better this than to let potential problems
drop through the net?

To be fair, this particular issue could be configuration, driver,
kernel or a bonafida software bug, so should probably be addressed on
the user list first.
