Default An Accidental Mission To The Sun?

I believe that years ago Nasa sent up a probe that did not follow the intended course, because part of the design team was using metric units and part of the design team was using "English" units. As I recall this probe fell into the sun. Can anyone help me find this story? Is my recollection even close to the truth? Thanks
