I think we've honed in on the transmission fluids to use ... but have we determined the fluid-replacement schedule?

I understand BMW claims "lifetime fluid"; and I see on the net various supposedly bad-luck voodoo stories where the transmission fails (just because) just after a replacement of the fluids.

Can someone edify me as to WHEN we should consider replacing the lifetime fluid?
