So a bug in linux that on some future date will eat all your disks?
Something to think about, I guess...  For a more generic bug that
happens immediately, someone would notice before it makes it to
CentOS.    The more likely bug  would be in the person setting up the
backup software.  But regular test testores can catch those.
