Who can forget the Thanksgiving day, 2001 "Greased Turkey" kernel? It contained an ext2fs bug that caused massive file system corruption the _second_ time the file system was mounted. Even the best make mistakes. This one was particularly hard to detect, because it didn't show up the first time you booted into the kernel.
Any other favorites?
