Nothing’s perfect

Well, a few days into my running the new Firestorm 4.7.3 and sure enough a new BUG has reared its head. BUG-16745 refers to a strange phenomenon whereby your avatar starts to run or walk in place after standing from a ground sit. Hitting an arrow key of any type will stop it, but it is disconcerting at first. It does not happen if You are sat either on a poseball or other sit target. It is universal and I strongly suspect that it is related to the new Hover Height code in these post-SSB and AIS3 viewers. As of yet I do not know if Linden viewers show this bug but I’d be surprised if it was a purely FS BUG. I await further developments. While BUG-6925 is fixed, BUG-7761 is still around although a little less in evidence.

Information inworld is beginning to suggest that the issue IS FS specific. Thanks to ZZ.

Further research on this topic reveals that the culprit IS LL code and the issue DOES reproduce in the latest LL viewer…my information was inaccurate…sorry.
