Yes, do not even breath.  Rabbits are bigger than bugs, and they have
bigger ears, so they can hear you coming.  It is actually very rare to
encounter a rabbit in software; they are usually found in hardware.
They appear as a pulse or glitch that moves acroass the oscilloscope
screen out of sync with the rest of the trace.

I just knew we could blame it on hardware if we waited long enough!
