Oh yeah. In a shop of 7-1/2 developers, only one has come up with an SEU error related to non-supported code (we're on 7.2 TR5). She was trying to use %scanrpl().
I convinced the boss to buy everyone an RDi license about 2-1/2 years ago. I can't live without it, one tries half-heartedly to use it, the rest haven't even launched it yet and still write new code in fixed format or use "eval" in what little free-format they try. What a sad situation.
I keep waiting for one of them to have to maintain some of my **free code and, besides "deer in the headlights" when opening the source, waiting for SEU to light up when a line is changed.

Sadly though many RPGers still live in RPG III land and do not exploit the new features and consequently never notice the SEU issues.
