I find the problem in this case is that what the user thinks they did and what they actually did are two different things. This is such a recurring problem we include a 'diagnostic trace' facility that records a crap-pile of stuff about what the system is doing. We routinely tell the user to repeat the process that failed and record a trace while doing so.
