    As of today (Nov. 17) our Droid's cameras autofocus correctly.

    There was an issue in some code dealing with the timestamp and the autofocus, that self-corrects itself every 24 days. So in 24 days from Nov. 17, our cameras will go back to the bad autofocusing, but there's a catch. In 24 days from now, it will be Dec. 11, and...

    WTF is a self-correcting bug? Is that like a stupid programmer that got lucky?

    In a word yes. However some of these things can be very esoteric so you should be careful who you call stupid. I'm sure you've made mistakes as well!
