Historical note:
In the 1980s, CERN bought mini/supermini computers from two vendors that experienced the same thing: The VAX-780 had a bug (I never knew the detail of that bug) that DEC proudly announced that would be fixed in the upcoming VAX-750. To which CERN replied that in that case, the 750 would never be on their shopping list: They had developed their software working around that bug, and they were not going to maintain one software version with the workaround, and another without. So the bug was not fixed.

Not long thereafter, Norsk Data made a similar announcement for the ND-100, the successor of Nord-10, which had a well known bug in the MOD calculation when both arguments were negative. They received a similar message from CERN: If the ND-100 was not 100% software compatible with the Nord-10, CERN wouldn't buy it. So Norsk Data changed the bug to a feature, i.e. they documented the old behavior, and stuck to it for the ND-100.
