9 times out of 10 this type of issue is related to only a few of things. 1) Something isn't being properly initialized (especially common in loops; where do you initialize/reset conditions) 2) you are calling routines and not careful about parameter passing (value vs reference) 3) You've an error that for some reason is "swallowed". My first week on my current job I added an Unhandled Exception Handler to a troublesome Windows Service. It was very enlightening. 4) the Context has changed between your calculation loop and the validation (have seen issues with the same name used in different namespaces and the code was actually executing 2 different code sets)

This are a bear to track down. Often the best way to find the bug is swallow your pride and get a junior person to sit with you and explain your code to him. The 2nd set of eyes, rethinking the code as you explain it and sometimes "dumb" questions will highlight your problem. I ate crow recently after swearing my code was solid and it "had" to be a data issue, a code review with a person my junior caused me to spot the bad code I had passed over 100 times while trying to fix the bug.
