Just so I'm clear, if I use "-Q" that doesn't load anything, so I can't really do much with that.  I can run it, and I can tell you if it ever fails, but it seems unlikely it ever will, because I can't really do anything with it.

So far, I haven't seen the Q instance fail, when my regular instance has failed several times.
