I was in the middle of shooting a wedding, when suddenly my camera said that it was 'busy' - it was taking a while to go back to normal, so I decided to shut the camera off and just turn it back on again (I didn't mind loosing the last image). When I turned the camera back on... all of the sudden the shutter kept going off extremely fast (without me pressing the shutter button). I turned the camera back off, but the shutter kept going off. I freaked out and too the battery out to make it stop.
