Wacky bugs

Just got this bug report from a vendor. I almost laughed out loud at its specificity and quirkiness.

"The problem has to do with an error in computing the internal timer used to schedule operations. This problem could occur within a 12-hour window preceding 9:51am on 24 July 2008. At that time, the server would lock up or crash. It could be safely restarted after 9:51am local time. If uncorrected, this bug will recur in approximately 2.25 years."
