I don't know whether mystery bugs or mystery fixes are worse.
I'd been rewriting some code and was dreading trying to debug a crash in the exception-throwing code generated by MSFT's compiler. The kind of crash where you don't have any useful information to go on, like a stack or heap corruption that a debug build doesn't even notice at the time.
