Gifts That Keep On Giving

At some point several years ago, I changed a bit of code in the import/export logic of our software and apparently got interrupted, because I never fixed up the error returns to reflect the changes that I had made. As we added more import/export functionality, my code was slavishly copied to make new routines, all of which now have the same bug.

Or, at least, they had the same bug, until one of my co-workers noticed it and I went through and fixed it in three different import/export routines across four releases of the software.


The code, by the way, works just fine on the Client side (which is where I tested), but not so well on the Server side of the product.
