Bugs & Viruses 1983. The year of the IBM PC XT, the Apple Lisa, Pioneer 10 leaving the solar system, and Hooters opening up shop in Florida. It's also the birthyear of a 25 year old BSD bug, squashed only a few days ago.

"This little bug's fix was actually fairly trivial (as is common with these sorts of long-standing bugs)"

Why do you believe this is the case?
Anyone else observe this?

In my experience, bugs occur in clusters -- so perhaps there are more decades old bugs out there.
