Prat 3.0

498 - 'Unstacking' Chat Windows causes WoW to crash.

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a new chat window
2. Try to move new chat window somewhere else on the screen. ( unstack it ) ( Chat is unlocked. )

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expected a new separate chat window but every time I try I get a crash: ERROR#132 Fatal Exception, Access Violation, The memory could not be 'read' etc.

What version of the product are you using?

*IMPORTANT* -> Can you reproduce the problem when ONLY Prat is running?

Do you play on US or EU. What language do you use?
US server, English

Do you have an error log of what happened?

Please provide any additional information below.

    I can verify that this bug still happens. I'll look for more debug info, but it crashes the whole client.

    You can just set the ChatTabs module to "Dont Load", and the problem will go away.

    I have never been able to reproduce this myself, so its difficult to fix.

    You'll have to delete your Prat Saved Variables or disable Prat while moving the new chat windows.

    The disabling is only temporary (you'd have to do it every time you want to move a new window), but the wiping of variables works long term as far as I've seen so far.
