82 - Loot frame glitches on gathering world objects

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Install Xloot and Xloot frame only, default settings (problem occurs with other modules enabled or disabled)
2. Enable Blizzard auto-loot (not sure if that's relevant or not)
3. Go mining, herbing or gather other world objects (ie yellow cogwheel)
4. Intermittently the loot frame will fail to appear on a gather

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Intermittently the loot frame will fail to appear on a gather. The cast bar for the gather shows up, and I get XP for gathering the node, my character remains kneeling in the "looting" position, but the loot frame never appears with the contents. The problem is rare, but once it occurs, it will reliably continue to happen on repeated attempts to gather the same or different nodes. Once it gets into that state, the only way I've found to "unstick" it is either /reloadui or go kill a mob and loot it, which appears to restore the loot frame to normal operations.

Things that do not "unstick" it: waiting 15 minutes, changing zone, changing gathering node, toggling auto loot, killing mobs without looting them

It's possible there is some server issue at play here, but the fact that it gets into a persistently stuck state suggests it's a local addon problem.

What version of the product are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?
There are no errors, but if there's some xloot state I should snapshot next time it happens, I can do that.

    Still happening in z12b-release, still very annoying. This time it happened while gathering an awkwardly-placed piece of the isle chamberlain, and wasted several minutes un-glitching it so i could gather my item.

    How can we debug this problem?

    Saw this again today with z11-release, while trying to loot a cogwheel quest item (lumber for the shieldwall dailies). Exact same behavior, went away after I killed and looted a mob.

    Just saw your update. I'm installing z10a-release-4 now and will watch it for a few days to see if it happens again.

    This should be resolved, please confirm.
