<donning asbestos suit> Sometimes, we don't have time to do both. My
company has occasionally sent out manuals so early that they are
acknowledged "beta". I hate it, but it's necessary. Because our software
is released and updated so quickly, sometimes we're lucky to get a
manual out at all. I take pride in my work, and try to catch every
little mistake, but sometimes right is more important than pretty.

I'm sure that no one else on this list has ever had THIS problem. :-)
