This is a "toy" example, but in Perl I made this mistake (again) just yesterday:
my $thing = get_somestuff(...);
And of course it really needed to be my ($thing) or my @thing or my
(@thing). "Difficult to track" is relative, but by the time this all
bubbled up into a failure it took a silly amount of time to identify
(a half hour or an hour).
