43 - Event: Companion_Update (in all caps, but the ticket won't allow it)

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Log in with the mod enabled
2. Behold that glory that is your chat box being spammed to death

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect the mod to output to the chatbox only when something important happens.
What I get is a message every 3-6 seconds:
 Starting Cast Detection

What version of the product are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?
No actual LUA errors

Please provide any additional information below.

    Try turning off debug mode. Type "/mount debug" and it should turn it off.

    Not sure why it's on, and why it only seems to happen to some people, as I didn't have any information like that showing up in my chat window.

    This issue is occurring, with the most recent version of the addon. I had to disable the mod just to get the mod to stop outputting what I assume is debug information.

    initial message upon login:

    EVENT: COMPANION_UPDATE Starting Cast Detection

    I then proceeded to shape shift (druid) from flight form to night elf..then back into flight form and got the message:

    EVENT: UNIT_SPELLCAST_SUCCEEDED Stopping Cast Detection Seen Mount Processing Get summoned mount Mo Mount is Summoned

    I then turned learning mode off ..assumed that was the problem. It then proceeded to output what looks to be code from the mod with variable names and values into my chat pane:

    Mountiful_Update() MountifulSelectedNum=1 panel_selected(): {table} > [categorynum] = 11 [id] = 6 [index] = 6 [name] = notseen Mountiful_Update() MountifulSelectedNum=11 Key = learningmode

    ....and then back to spamming me with the original message

    EVENT: COMPANION_UPDATE Starting Cast Detection

    I am running version r210.

    Maybe it's just me, but you're using an old version of the addon. Now, the newest version doesn't seem to work right, at least for me, but you should at least try a later version. I know for a fact that r208 works great, with no problems, so maybe you want to try going to a later version. Odds are, the problem you are having is fixed.
