I just hope that in the future you can be a bit less sure *that* something
you think is true, is really true, when you don't know *why* it should be
true. By all means be confident when you have both experience (practice)
and a-priori reasons (theory) to back up your opinions, but be more
humble if either or both are missing.

The error message reports both the problem and the error string that goes
with the "errno" from the last failed Unix system-call, this is often
useful. In this case "errno" is 0, and the corresponding message is
"Success". Perhaps there should be special code to leave out the error
message when errno == 0, but there are bigger fish to fry just now.
