Affects Version/s: Minecraft 14w26b
Fix Version/s: None
I created a video on the subject. The bug is very "selective" location-wise and only works if the is pointing north with at least a single piece of redstone in front of it. That piece of redstone is in MOST cases required to be connected to another piece (anywhere as long as it comes in contact with the other piece of redstone). After this, you simply apply a redstone pulse to the repeater, causing it to pulse rapidly, acting like a redstone clock.
This was run in a Vanilla minecraft environment.
