Silent Over-the-Air Software Update Fixes Droid Camera Bug?

Am I the only one who thinks that if Apple issued an over-the-air iPhone software update — no notice, no confirmation — that it would generate a Category 5 shit storm?

Update: Oops, too quick to judge on this one. Here’s a forum thread suggesting that there was no software update, but instead that it is a date-based bug:

There’s a rounding-error bug in the camera driver’s autofocus routine (which uses a timestamp) that causes autofocus to behave poorly on a 24.5-day cycle. That is, it’ll work for 24.5 days, then have poor performance for 24.5 days, then work again.

The 17th is the start of a new “works correctly” cycle, so the devices will be fine for a while. A permanent fix is in the works.

Droid users who set their clocks back a few days now have the autofocus problem again.
