    Back long ago when I was first learning C programming I had a heck of
    a time with, of all things, the open() function -- I could not get it
    to work properly or as I expected. I somehow kluged around opening
    files and went on with the project. When I came back to it, I
    reimplemented what I thought was the same code and, lo and behold, it
    worked with no problem. Since then I've always had a theory that
    applications, libraries, and programming languages somehow "know" when
    you're a neophyte to them and will actively do things to thwart you. :-)
