Discussion on: What's the longest you've ever spent debugging a single bug?

Recently 5 days, off and on between meetings. No stack trace, just a build that kept slowly moving along taking almost 1 hour until I tracked down the culprit: Emotion 10 and how it handles type definitions can slow TypeScript compilation to a crawl. I figured it out by looking for similarities between packages that were slow in a monorepo, then commented out code until I found what caused the slowness and got the build down from 45 minutes to less than 1 minute.
