Updated to a new version of a library and everything worked fine. Well, except for this tiny little detail. Started debugger to fix it. Debugged strange, complicated code with foreign language comments and cross-platform #defines clattered over the whole library, stepped through at least 200 files. No luck. Bug still there, no idea why. Read forum posts with similar problems. Studied the change log of the library. Nothing. Again, debugging. Again amazed by the amount of code my data gets pushed trough. Giving up, going to sleep.
Next day: an idea. What if I put this flag into that function? Actually, I have no idea why I wanted to try this but it's better than giving up. Compiled. Started the app. Bug fixed.
This happened quite some times now for me. It seems that somehow sometimes my subconscious mind solves programming problems for me during my sleep, and it tells me what to do, but not why. :) But I better don't think in detail about this.
