> Please don't be so melodramatic. It doesn't happen "out of nowhere". You've purposely broken your development focus to compile and unit test.

No, I'm compiling to see if my changes still allow the tests to pass. This is a huge problem if you're doing TDD. The main argument you make is that it's not such a big problem and I think the number of people complaining says otherwise. Or maybe we developers just like being melodramatic. I honestly can't tell. Maybe what triggers such passion is go being very close to a perfect tool for certain things and those annoyances look like small black dots in a perfectly white surface (That sounded dramatic as well, what's wrong with me? :) )

I don't have a great amount of experience with TDD specifically, so maybe I am underestimating the inconvenience this causes some developers. :)
