That happened with a large project of mine; I designed and built a web based dynamic database front end that allowed rapid access to any SQL database on our system and did a ton of other important in house functions; then we got a new marketing guy who decided he couldn't sell it as it was and wanted a new version that completely changed the premise of the original so I had to do six months of rewrites.

He couldn't or wouldn't understand why it took so long to make such "small" changes, and the pressure was to make them very fast as he was selling this promised software to clients; the result was a Frankenstein's monster which was a nightmare to debug and make changes to. The kicker was that nobody actually wanted this new hybrid product and it was canned 6 months later.

Everyone in the office still uses the original version every day.
