It sounds like nobody documented it.
 
I worked on a project were all comments were deemed bad 'in case clients got hold of the source'. As a result we had a lot of badly, undocumented code. I ended up having to fix an error in a module that took more than two weeks to do and test, the final change being a missing condition in the logic. Why did it take so long? The code had been very badly written and was undocumented. The problem code was due to a cludge that had been put in to work around the server not always being reliable.
 
Why wasn't the server working? It had been cludged to work around dubious inputs from the frogging client module I had to fix. The shite data was long gone but the stupid cludges remained causing a break on a few edge cases.
 
For the love of God, raise the issue and whatever you have to do DOCUMENT IT!
