Methinks the visible problems do _not_ occur *during* the loading of
the new software or other maintenance work. Rather, that the problem
manifests itself only "when the conditions are right" to provoke the
failure. Which, not surprisingly generally occurs during times of
peak activity. And, that once the manifestation is apparent, the
"cause of the problem" is traced back to a flaw in the new software or
other maintenance work.
