dancing frog

<programming, humour>

A bug or glitch that only occurs for a particular user; never when the user tries to show it to anyone else.

The term is derived from a Warner Brothers cartoon in which a man discovers a frog which can sing and dance; he believes this will make his fortune but the frog never performs in front of anyone else.
