Tech/Engineering - Computers: Software
French term or phrase: bogues bloquants
This is in a contract for supply of a security system which includes a bespoke software package:

"en cas de ***bogues bloquants***, la liste des réserves sera établie conjointement et une nouvelle procédure de recette sera à mettre en œuvre ..."

Apart from "incapacitating bugs", which is just a guess (but produced a fair number of web hits for health-care related topics, nothing for software), I'm at a loss to translate this expression.

Any help will be gratefully received.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Many thanks Bourth. Clearly I overlooked my own golden rule, "the simplest solution is usually the best". Incapacitating bugs, indeed .. I shall follow the KudoZ rules and wait 24h, but you have obviously supplied the answer.
