Today I encounterd, by accident, a 'bug' in Borland Developer Studio using the Delphi personality. I do quote the bug here, because actually it is not a bug, but on the other hand it is a bug. (How about confusion)
Accidently I pasted a string in de class definition of a form. The pasted string happened to be part of a query with a parameter in it.
"WHERE somefield =: SomValue "
After this BDS increased its memory usage upto 1,9GB!
This is definitly a bug, but what is the chance that you encounter this bug?
Actually almost zero. I mean who types a '=:' in a class definition? Well ahum I do.
I assumed this bug has something to do with Error insight, so I reported it in Quality Central where you can find in under QC36020.
Main issue here: Is a bug a bug until he (or she) is discovered?
Go try it yourself!
Steps to reproduce:
1. Start BDS2006
2. Create a new VCL application
3. Type =: in, for example, the private section of the TForm class definition
