I submit to you that, although NetHack responded to the full
moon in its intended way, this quirky, very hard-to-fathom
stop on a machine-learning journey was indeed a bug and a
worthy one in the pantheon. It's not a Harvard moth, nor a
500-mile email, but what is?

Because the team used Singularity to back up and restore
their stack, they inadvertently carried forward the machine
time and resulting bug each time they tried to solve it. The
machine's resulting behavior was so bizarre, and seemingly
based on unseen forces, that it drove a coder into fits. And
the story has a beginning, a climactic middle, and a
denouement that teaches us something, however obscure.

The NetHack Lunar Learning Bug is, I submit, quite worth
memorializing. Thank you for your time.
