I had, yes, but I cleared it.

I'm intentionally doing "weird things" to see how the system reacts, and
when things go bad (like this), what can be done to make the system more

If I've learned anything in 10 years of HA, it's that people will do all
the things you think they shouldn't do. So I'm trying to do them before
they do and learn how to mitigate as much as possible.
