What is the "long first second" bug?
In the MS version, under certain rare circumstances, the first second will last up 3/5 of a second longer than it should, which can lead to a higher time. This is called the "long first second" bug, or LFS. Exploiting this bug is considered cheating, and any times obtained from it are invalid for the purpose of high scores.
