Actually, good automated testing software (AUTOTESTER comes to mind)
does far more than just hammer keystrokes to the host.  It also
keeps track of what it *THINKS* the resultant screen should look
like and reports descrpancies.

Automatic testing programs are a PAIN to setup, but can be a life 
saver when you are making major changes to a highly configurable 
system.  If you are diligent in setting up your testing scripts, when 
you make a change to a system, it will kick through all the options 
in the previous version and report anything that behaves differently.
