In fact, it's more like "no-one has ever been sure enough that
FashHashMap has broken their app to file a bug report". If an
application misbehaves once in a while, it's almost impossible to
determine what the cause was, and therefore no bug report would ever get
filed. 

I think FastHashMap should definitely be deprecated if there is a
possibility of intermittent failure.
