Low Frame Rate in Forest
I was standing in a forest in the wilderness, no city nearby but one old style city on the planet. Frame rate was a tragic 5fps. I built a fire. Frame rate jumped to 60fps while looking at the fire, dropped back to 5fps when I looked away.

Found the frame rate parasite hiding in the code that puts the buttons on the right side of the screen. When checking for rocks, shrubs, trees and grass, the trees part was missing the range test, so it was carefully examining 39,000 trees in my area to see if I was looking at any of them.

The fix was trivial and the bug was frustrating so I built a client update with only this fix.

You can't say it was not thorough enough!
