Just found this kind of funny in a sick and demented kind of way.
If you go to Glass Americas Web site http://www.glassusa.com and click on the Saftey & Quality link, check out the little vidoe clips on the bottom, one shows improper install, where the crash dummy blows the airbag and the windshield goes flying out of the car. The second clip is a "safe install" the dummy agin blows the airbag, windshield stays bonded to the car, dummy still hits the tops of the windshield (looks like he breaks his neck), and then his face falls off. It looks to me like the accident where the windshield flys out of the car does less damage to the dummy
