This is something I remember coming up a lot back when Red Hat first
started putting out Rawhide. We would get lots of tickets from people
who would install it and expect it to a) work and b) be supported.
This was an item that had to be said over and over again until it
became a mantra from technical support to the president of the
company... "If you use Rawhide, don't expect it to work, don't expect
your system to even work ever again... but thankyou for testing"

So you will say this quite a bit is my guess.
