I agree with your points! However, most of your points relate to faulty component, incompetent developer, etc. while there might be reasons also on tester’s side, e.g. that the tester isolated the bug incorrectly, and there is no cause-effect relationship between the cause I found and defect that occurred. A particular case of that would be that there were multiple causes of the defect in different components, and we fixed only one of those causes.

Joe, those are great questions but I think I may lack instruments to answer them. My feeling is that system thinking is one of such instruments to understand how system parts relate to each other. What would be other useful instruments here?

comment Reviewing unit tests before implementation
+1 for cycles. TDD is done in cycles: unit tests are very close to the code (and so solution and architecture) that is evolving. So it would make no sense to have unit tests written once and freeze them forever. It would however, make more sense to agree on some high-level acceptance tests in advance.

@SheyMouse, it may help others helping you if you write down the code you tried, the expected result, and actual result, as you were reporting a bug ;-)
