I can say with almost 100% certainty, from a few years of QA work and 
12+  years of end user support, 2nd level support, and above, that a 
small change never takes 'just a few minutes' or 'just an hour'. And 
said change almost NEVER can be made without breaking 4 or 5 other things.

Unfortunately, you never really realize the small change you made 
broke those 5 other things until months later.
