I remember!

We recently had an issue where one of our customer reps discovered that a capability was broken, turns out tracing the history (back more than 10 years, and contacting an old friend who retired a year ago) it was not broken, it was unintuitive but intended behavior, but not what the poorly-designed interface implied would happen. And it was even documented (cryptically) to behave that way.

So I used that old line ('since it's documented, it's not a bug, it's a feature') on the customer rep as a joke, they got really mad!

Happy ending, it will be resolved in our next release; corrected to behave intuitively according to what the interface implies, and the documentation clarified and expanded.
