How so? Users might still have reported the problem.

In this case we hit the "copy-paste error into email and hit send"
reflex of some TSVN users. So this problem is reported a lot of times
and it stands out like a big red pimple on a nose. But, thankfully, those
aren't the only kinds of problem reports we get.

I agree. But for all we know, it could just as well be some tool people
run which happens to modify text-bases. The reports don't provide enough
information about the source of the checksum error.
