Description Svata Dedic 2014-12-12 16:00:31 UTC
A fix may fail, for example if the text (or dependent classes) changes in between the Fix is created and the fix execution time. Currently the infrastructure does not support some 'error bubble' that could inform the user that the fix is unable to complete - it simply does a no-op.

Whenever I find such situation in the fix code, I mark it with FIXME: report, so the places can be easily found, but thorough review of all fixes will be necessary anyway.
