No, unfortunately, it's not a small fraction.  I've hit this problem
on several projects, and because I'm honest about my past experiences

Perhaps what you mean is that a small fraction of darcs operations
trigger this behavior.  That may be true, but most users will
encounter the behavior at least once, which is too often.
