went through these kinds of stages a few times in my career.

once it led me to discover a leak in a major travel website's purchase flow caused by Java's Thread class, related to thread groups.

most recently, I was writing some Linux auth code in C, reached a point where I could rule out my code, and found a bug in sudo. freaking sudo.

(also related to groups, though the Linux user kind, not Java threads.)
