There are various reasons (like too restrictive timeouts, changing window titles
...) why a "Component not found" error may occur. If the error doesn't exist anymore
the next day, this _may_ be an idicator that you test needs to be adapted to be
more tolerant. Therefore every "Component not found" error is worth beeing
examined carefully by looking at the run-log, which also can be saved to
preserve the information ;-)
