That much I figured. What I was puzzled about was _how_ it was being incompetent. Also how it could be so in a way that wouldn't be obvious to the professor in question. 

I haven't used Urkund, but people are pushing it here at CBS too. If they start automating it on electronic submissions in maths and stats, some interesting things could happen. I have used iThenticate as a journal editor, and that one will tell you word for word which sections of text are identical to which sections of text in which other documents.
