How can I write hard-to-find bugs???
The easiest way would be to use threads and global variables (and only
that, no semaphore, no condition, no mutex, etc).
Or better, throw in a semaphore, post it accidentally in some obscure
situation (e.g. error condition), and have this result in a hardware
lockup. Yes, I had to debug one of those just last week.
Troll group removed.
