I don't know. My personal best is to spend two weeks chasing a one wrong
character bug. What's more, it was introduced after adding ~20 lines of
code, and I knew it. Beat that!
To my credit I will say that this was assembly (68000), and that the
problem manifested itself in such an unrelated area of the program, that
I overruled my own judgment and searched the problem in the vicinity of
where it happened. As life would have it, the real problem was a missing
"#" (which means "use immediate value X", so instead it read "Take value
from address X").
