Based on a thread from Stack Overflow, Joey deVilla gives us a new dictionary of technical jargon.  Sadly, definitions for Heisenbug and Bohrbug were missed off:

Heisenbug (n.) A computer bug that disappears or alters its characteristics when an attempt is made to study it. (named after the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle)

Bohrbug (n.) A bug that manifests itself consistently under a well-defined (but possibly unknown) set of conditions. (named after the Bohr Atom Model)

(Wikipedia, 2010)

Apparantly, Yoda Conditions are considered best practice.
