Longest Bugfix Ever

I’m going through the DrJava bug reports and close those that are no longer relevant. I found this gem:

[ 1123221 ] Debug mode blown away on System.exit(0)
Date Submitted:1906-01-18 11:08
Closed as of: 2008-01-18 01:28

It took us 102 years to close the bug. That’s quite possibly the longest bugfix ever.
