“Motorola Droid camera autofocus fixed in secrecy? [Not]”

There’s a rounding-error bug in the camera driver’s autofocus routine (which uses a timestamp) that causes autofocus to behave poorly on a 24.5-day cycle. That is, it’ll work for 24.5 days, then have poor performance for 24.5 days, then work again.

That’s the most awesome WTF of a bug I’ve heard about in quite a while.
