This 100%. I have read postmortems of some "significant discoveries" which have turned out to only be reproducible on a particular build or software on a single analyst's machine. Or not at all. One "result" turned out to hinge on the iteration order of python dictionaries.

And this definitely didn't happen after those working on tools to help said analysts make reproducible results encouraged the analysts to use said tools... No, that would be crazy.
