Facebook search box bug in IE7

Recently a friend of mine discovered a funny bug while he was searching for people on facebook. The people search box seemed to behave in a strange way in a certain situation.

After clearing the last letter of the default "enter a name" message in the people search box, the complete message reappears. As a result it is hard to fill in the name of the person you are looking for. This happens only if you have clicked in the search box right before the page was loaded completely. Our action interrupts the initialization of the search box in one way or another.

This problem seems to be browser related as only in IE7 I am able to reproduce the bug. Other browsers seem not to be affected. Thanks to R.J. for noticing the bug :-) Enjoy!

How about you? Have you ever found funny bugs in popular applications?
