Is there a problem here?  

Pay us nothing, or else!

Today, I received a threatening email from the electric company. It seems their system incorrectly believes I have not paid my bill, and I have a past due balance of $0.00 that must be paid immediately, or they will disconnect my service.



I think I'll try to make a $0.00 payment through their web site.



Hmmm... It seems their system refuses to accept the $0.00 payment they demand!

You know, as widely published as the systems that have done just this sort of thing, so a user writes a check for $0.00 and it crashes the bank system. You'd think this would be the first thing or at least near the top of test cases to check for?
