Build quality of cameras. Is it a big deal to you?

I hear time and time again that the build quality of entrly level dslr cameras is not as good as the top models. While that statement may be true, does it make any real world difference? I suspect that the build quality of any dslr made by respected manufacturers such as Nikon and Canon is more than sufficient for 99% of photographers. That being the case, is build quality really an issue? If you think entry level dslr cameras are not built tough enough for you, please tell me why you think so. Did you ever break one? Did you ever put one through something more grueling than this:
