I seem to recall from many years ago that this had something to do with 
pulling the plug to simulate a real crash on a machine during heavy 
activity and then making sure recovery and check tables  worked ok.

I seem to remember another adhoc test where I put a database on a CD and 
tested that the read only database behaved.

I  tried to find that ancient  list of adhoc  tests, but haven't yet. My 
memory on these matters may not be completely correct.
