There was that time in the later 1990s where I took most of a global 
network down several
times by typing "show ip bgp regexp <regex here>" on most all of the 
core routers.  It turned
out to be a cisco bug.  I looked for a reference, but cannot find one.  
Ahh, the earlier days of
the commercial internet...gotta love'em.
