I don't know, haven't tried it yet, merely extrapolating
from how I _THINK_ it works. I used to be a System Test Engineer
and had a gift for being able to walk up to hardware/software
and break it. Spooky? No, because I could extrapolate from
the design, I could often anticipate just where to nudge it to
cause it to crash. I wasn't very popular with the programmers.
