I have personal knowledge of a team of developers who've spent more time
messing around with UML diagrams than it took for a smaller rival team
to deliver a complete working product (written in C/C++ though). I'm 
pretty sure everyone knows of such instances. 

The danger with UML and similar tools is that they appear to trigger
off a primeval urge to "object hunt." Particularly bad OO nutcases
then create more objects than working lines of code.
