I see references to the shaking bug, but I cannot find any description of it. Can someone explain this please?

The shaking bug occurs when you "overload" a single connected goo ball with too many connections. It will then start shaking around very fast and (if there are enough connections) eventually detach itself when it moves too far away from the other balls.
This works best with Ivy balls as they can be detached, but also if you have a wheel or a detaching surface like a screen side. Search the forum for "shaking" or "shaking bug". You'll find videos demonstrating the bug in the "Max Goo chart" thread.

Unfortunately, I have searched for "Shaking" and "shaking bug", but cannot find it on the search.

Go to www.goofans.com and under "addins" then "levels" find and download "BUG school #2". The flower mentioned is the shaking bug.
