If it's a commonly-encountered problem with a known solution (or at
least things you can try), why on earth wouldn't you want that in the
documentation? If it's not there, you're going to have more users on the
forums/IRC asking "why am I getting problem X?" (I've had circular
dependancy problems with python in the past) and you can't exactly tell
them to RTFM if there isn't one.

It doesn't have to be in the handbook itself, a separate document would
do, but if lots of people are experiencing similar problems it would be
sensible, at least in my opinion, to have some sort of written
documentation that they can look to.
