Actually, you have a great story that illustrates real engineering issues. In the embedded world (I live there too), there's just too much weird s*** to break your code. I happen to work in packaging (think bottles running down a high speed line). One thing that always has to be handled is when the line stops, it almost always shifts back a little. There are a hundred other little *real* things that will render your elegant solution a bubbling mess of debris...
