Not surprised at all, you can tell by looking at it that it wasn't done properly.

Oh yeah 2 out of 4 solder joists were like that real easy working with a toilet in your way, lucky im a thin guy and fairly limbal but that was to much! I had cramps to no end getting in there and replacing the shower body let alone the getting any pipe cutter in there as the pipes were up against the 2x4s grrrrr lol

You could have pulled the toilet, but then you never know what trouble that would have been.

Homeowner special is what we call it. See that crap all the time. Looks like whoever couldn't get the water out when they made that attempt.

I guess that is technically a case where the solder did not "wet" the joint.

How long did that joint hold up against the 40 to 80 PSI water pressure, water hammer, chemical attack by what's in the water, etc., etc.?
Is the house on well water?
Did you open the joint by twisting?
