    This error happened yet again today (& repeated) retrieving 2 full mails (12 items each) containing ore, gems & the like with Postal. With the new v10.2.6.4-Beta, the first day trying it again after previously switching to kRestack (which does auto-stacking without bugs).

    Yes, getting this here too occasionally in both WoW 3.3.3 & 3.3.5 with MrPlow v10.2.6.3-Beta on a USEnglish client/server. On auto-opening of mail with Postal (tradeskill materials that often are in incomplete piles need to be restacked when in bags) & MrPlow trying to automatically restack items once in bags. The complete error from BugSack/BugGrabber:

    Its not 100% reproducible; does not happen on every Postal mail collection of incomplete stacks of tradeskill mats. Only some of the time. But its only happened when MrPlow tries to auto-restack items in a character's bags after being pulled out of the mailbox. Running no other stacking mods.

    Have since switched to BankStack on the characters I play the most due to not wanting my BugGrabber log filling up with this error. I miss the MrPlow auto-stacking, but don't miss the bug. Be nice to see it fixed someday.

    I'm getting this every now and then, too.
    Mostly when other addons are trying to move stuff at the same time.

    Have had it happen when nothing else was going on, too, though.

    Includes locals:

    Also, it coincided with this:
