While I'm sure practices vary, we have heard in this forum from authoritative participants in the log-checking process of major contests, indicating that human judgment is generally applied to every deletion or penalty.  If XX1XX says "I lost 25 QSOS on the first day due to a computer glitch," it is difficult indeed to imagine any contest sponsor assessing a NIL on anyone who claimed a QSO with XX1XX during the period of doubt.
