That is almost worse than having a bug, since you're liable to make the same
mistake again without knowing it. I used to be paranoid, thinking someone
"must" have slipped in and changed some of my code; but persistence pays off
and there is a great deal of satisfaction in knowing why something works now
when it didn't before. That is the "primary" reason for making one
change/adjustment at a time; then you know what fixed what.
