It's fairly common, now that CAE software has become more 'mature.' 
Program support is expensive, and Microsoft has set the example of 'ship 
it and let your customers find the bugs.' Some day there's going to be 
serious accident resulting from a bug in some analysis package and a 
lawyer will get a look at all those disclaimers of merchantability. 
Should be quite a brou-ha-ha.
