Great question, Jeff.  I'm not sure where you would put some of Rob 
Jolly's case studies for CMHC.  If my memory serves, he found several 
homes with moisture damage over a fair percentage of a wall (usually 
the north wall), where the moisture damage was believed to be caused by 
wind-driven rain against cement stucco.  Other case studies involved 
plumbing, window, and roof leaks.
