A Swarm of Gnats

Someone found a way to generate audio output from the data that GCC is handling. Using this to listen to the events leading up to an GNAT failure, he thought it reminded him of insects.
So he asked a GNAT developer, “Is this the sound of a swarm of gnats?” The developer told him, “No, that's the song of the sick Ada.”
