I'm thinking about any bug that could be exposed to the user after a MiKTeX update, whether that comes from MiKTeX itself or if it comes from MiKTeX updating other packages. If LyX causes an update of a LaTeX package without asking the user, then my opinion is that LyX would be responsible for any bug or change in behavior that the package comes with. That's exactly why I think LyX should not cause such an update without asking the user. Scott
