I wrote an article in DataFile a year or two ago about the 29C lunar lander program. It contains two bugs which I speculated were due to the limited space of its progenitor. The first bug let you drop below ground level and rise up above it without crashing if done during a single burn. I think the second bug computed your terminal velocity wrong when you ran out of fuel. Something like that.

The bugs persisted as the program was ported to later calculators with more memory.
