It's A Heisenbug! | Dr Dobb'sIt's A Heisenbug! | Dr Dobb's: "Bugs of this kind are often called Heisenbugs, after Werner Heisenberg. Heisenberg is best known for the uncertainty principle, which says (for example) that it is possible to determine the position or momentum of a particle accurately, but not both at the same time. As a result, the term has come to denote a bug that stems from uncertainty about the order in which two parts of a program are executed. Such bugs can be the most difficult of all to find."
