Maybe masters sometimes do the right thing, and if they seem not to,
this might still be for the pupil's good?

Perhaps it depends on master and his/her objectives. Does the master
care about pleasing the master or does the master care about following
the path? Is the path important enough to destroy work of poor
student? Should the poor student make proper backups? Can Buddha's
nature be restored from a backup? Can it be stored there first? Which
one tape has more Buddha on it, the one with backup of formatted drive
or the one that have been laid over degausser for a year?
