mandelbug in Technology

jargon, programming
/man'del-buhg/ (From the Mandelbrot set) A bug whose underlying causes are so complex and obscure as to make its behaviour appear chaotic or even nondeterministic. This term implies that the speaker thinks it is a Bohr bug, rather than a heisenbug.
See also schroedinbug.
