78 - Timed DKP not functioning

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Run a raid with timed DKP active

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Timed DKP should be given at the right times.
Instead, sometimes timed DKP is not given at all and skipped.

What version of the product are you using?
MorgDKP 4.17 (r152) (yeah, I know it isn't latest version, but from the changelogs, this isn't something you have fixed)

Do you have an error log of what happened?
Full log at pastebin:

Please provide any additional information below.
Timed DKP (using an event called just "Timer") is set to be given at 15 minute intervals. As you can see in the pastebin log however, it's given at these times:
And that was the last time, although we ended it at 23:40

I was thinking this might be related to beeing dead when the timer is meant to add DKP? As we had quite a few deaths right here...

    Figured out the problem and working on a fix.

    That definitely helps but that would suggest that the mod is being turned off at some point. Which it shouldn't be if you are a ghost. You are definitely a ghost when out of zone right never alive? Did you notice if the mod ever turned off (icon turned grey)? Try turn off autozone for me and see if that takes away the issue. You will have to remember to turn the mod on when you enter the instance the first time though.

    Hey mate!

    I know exacly WHEN the problem occurs now, if not why.

    Sometimes when I die, the timer is reset to 0 when I get back into the instance.

    Example (DKP supposed to be given at 15 minute intervals):
    20:55 - DKP given
    21:08 - Back in instance after death
    21:10 - No DKP given
    21:23 - DKP given

    I figured it might have something to do with the zone switch? As when I release, for a while I am in Icecrown, instead of Ice Crown Citadell, before re-entering the citadell.
    Important to note however, is that it is when I re-enter the instance the timer gets reset. If i'm actually corpse running at the time (and then as it is, is located outside the instance), it will give out DKP.

    Hope this info will help out :)

    I will turn it on for our 10 man runs etc this week and see if I can nail it down. And don't we all wipe on trash:P

    Only reason why I wasn't using latest version was that I hadn't noticed there was a new version when we started the raid. Had a look on latest version, and as no fix for this was posted, I decided to ticket it, so that we hopefully can avoid it next sunday :)

    Didn't notice any other strange behaviour, but the times fit very well with when we were dead. I don't have any exact log of when I were dead, but we were wiping during those times (yeah, we wiped on trash before marrowgar :P)

    And as for starting new raids, or anything else - nope. It started at the start of the instance, and apart from loot during boss, I didn't touch the addon until I stopped it when we were done.

    Thanks man :)

    Is there a reason you aren't using the newest version? I have rewritten some of that code since v4.17. So looking at your log:

    20:26 correct
    20:41 correct
    21:02 late should have been 20:56
    21:17 correct
    21:24 BOSS
    21:32 correct
    21:47 correct
    22:30 missed should have been 22:02, 22:17
    23:13 missed should have been 22:45, 23:00

    So in that time period I presume you were whipeing on deathwhisper? Was there anything else strange going on? Did you notice the mod turned off after zoning ever? Any other info you can give me for that time period? Looking at the code I see no reason for this behavior but it can be elusive lol. You didn't start a new raid or anything in that time period I assume?
