I'm not sure that's a Y2K problem; more like your standard computer glitch. That's one of my favorite theories as to why Y2K caused no major problems. The world is full of software glitches that pop up on a day to day basis in any enterprise. Y2K was just a few more problems in a sea of glitches that the world seems well able to handle.
Of course, if the DOW does in fact now drop 98,637 points, I'll start believing all that "cascading cross default" BS.
