    What steps will reproduce the problem?
    1. Try to use the crafting window
    2. Craft window is not populated, try to change view

    What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
    ItemAuditor continuously spams the following message "GetItemInfo Failed to item link for nil (ID: 2), retrying in 1 second."
    This essentially locks up WOW, as it freezes the game every second.

    What version of the product are you using?

    Do you have an error log of what happened?
    There does not appear to be an error.

    Please provide any additional information below.

    Somehow it's trying to get ItemInfo for an invalid ItemID. It sounds like your saved variables is corrupted. Deleting it is an option but you would lose all of your pricing data that way. If you'd like you can also email your saved variables (World Of Warcraft/WTF/Account/<wow account name>/SavedVariables/ItemAuditor.lua) file to me ([email protected]) and I can find the corrupted entry and remove it. This file contains character names, realms, and item prices but nothing I would consider sensitive information. If you don't care about people being able to associate your characters with your curse username you can also attach it to the ticket.

    The other thing I will be doing is adding a counter so that if it fails more than 3 times it will give up. The problem there is that it wouldn't slow down the game, but it might be impossible to use the crafting window with corrupted save data.
