That, and the fact that the computer chooses to average inputs from the two sets of controls even when they're very different. One pilot pulling back, and the other pushing forward and the system just quietly averages them out rather than sounding another alarm?

This clearly looks like an anomaly that the plane should detect and correct. Or at least announce somehow. The computer should average only when controls are consistent with each other.

You never know what's the time when you have two clocks.
