OT, but since you brought up the subject OS/2:

My favourite one is this Q&A from the OS/2 programmers FAQ:

"Q: How big should my stacksize be?
A: It is critical to avoid stack sizes where byte 2 has a value of 2
or 4, e.g.:
* 0x00020000 (128k) 
* 0x00040000 (256k) 
* 0x33023678 
* 0x11041111 
Otherwise, when executing under OS/2 2.0GA there may be various and
always differing runtime error behaviors." 

(Yes, I've been using and programming OS/2 since 2.1, and still do)
