"Self-test feature
The anti-lock brake system consists of electronic
sensors and hydraulic solenoids controlled by a
computer. The computer has a built-in diagnostic
feature that tests the system each time you start
the engine and move the vehicle at a low speed in
forward or reverse. When the self-test occurs,
you may hear a clunk noise and/or feel a pulsation
in the brake pedal. This is normal and is not
an indication of any malfunction."

Right from the book.

I don't think that's a bug... it's meant to warn you in case you forget your gas cap. But most people wouldn't think to check that if the light comes on. Most new(er) vehicles do this I think. I had a 96 Ranger for nearly 7 years before I bought my Frontier two weeks ago, it was actually a very decent truck and I think the check engine light only came on once or twice, for a PCV valve and something else. Anyways there is no comparison to the Fronty though, blows it away in every respect.
