I think "cees" pinned the tail on the donkey. I have found that many people who use "all but" actually mean "completely" or "totally," and do not understand the literal meaning of the term in question. Then others turn around and use it incorrectly themselves, causing the vexation that started this thread in the first place. I have never liked using "all but" for all the confusion it brings.
