Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  flaky adj. (var sp. `flakey') Subject to frequent lossage. This use
     is of course related to the common slang use of the word to describe a
     person as eccentric, crazy, or just unreliable. A system that is flaky
     is working, sort of -- enough that you are tempted to try to use it --
     but fails frequently enough that the odds in favor of finishing what you
     start are low. Commonwealth hackish prefers dodgy or wonky.
