Bizarre Droid Auto-Focus Bug

The real reason for the bug was revealed in a comment on an Engadget post by someone claiming to be Google engineer Dan Morrill: 'There's a rounding-error bug in the camera driver's autofocus routine (which uses a timestamp) that causes autofocus to behave poorly on a 24.5-day cycle,' said Morrill. 'That is, it'll work for 24.5 days, then have poor performance for 24.5 days, then work again.The 17th is the start of a new "works correctly" cycle, so the devices will be fine for a while. A permanent fix is in the works.'
