When I'm thinking about this, an inconsistence came to my mind. Vetinari was talking with Nobby Nobbs in the end of Guards! Guards! but in Men at arms he did not recognize him and asked him, if he's a dwarf and a city's employee (or something like this).
Maybe forgetting of Nobby's face after some time is kinda self-defense mechanism of the mind?
