Does anyone else think that's a fundamentally broken way to find a good programmer?

Yes, its fundamentally broken, but it cuts both ways. If they reject you because you didn't give the answer that they found by googling, instead assessing the answer you did give, do you really want to work with that team? If its some HR flunkie that filtering you out, what caliber of engineer are they like to have working for that company? If if the actual devs, how savvy must they be if they can't see past a googled programming problem answer? In either case, do you really want to be working with those developers?

Of course, this only matters if you already have a paying job.
