I agree, that it all depends on context, and it certainly is understandable for someone to cry over a personal issue such as a death in the family. I've also seen people shed a few tears (though not outright crying) when someone they liked left a company after years of working there.
But yes, there are some times when it's less than professional, especially when it relates to work issues. I had somone call me once from a company I had asked to do something for me, get rather emotional about the fact that they were unable to help me (not quite crying but almost, I could tell!). That really didn't help my feelings about it any. I would have preferred it if she had maintained some composure--but then, I also understand if someone's having a bad day!
