jargon, programming /shroh'din-buhg/ (MIT, from the
Schroedinger's Cat thought-experiment in quantum physics) A
design or implementation bug in a program that doesn't
manifest until someone reading source or using the program in
an unusual way notices that it never should have worked, at
which point the program promptly stops working for everybody
until fixed. Though (like bit rot) this sounds impossible,
it happens; some programs have harboured latent schroedinbugs
for years.
