I didn't get the whirl about yesterday, but I've had it in the past. I got the stand around looking foolish thingy quite a few times yesterday, even in instances. I'm not sure it has anything to do with the video drivers. I'm using a NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT with the latest NVidia drivers. I already know you're special... I think you're lucky, too!
About the other stuff... I just don't know. I still get key-unbindings but I've not had the assploding empty UI since the last update. We'll see. You're theory is as good a theory as any. Either that or it's and elf thing.
My Sig Image: hath rid itself of this mortal coil.
Overhauled ranged combat so that you are never, ever rooted against your will. o When you want to shoot, just click attack. You'll fire as soon as you click. If you're moving, you'll shoot while you're moving. o In order to shoot again, you'll need to reload. You must stop moving and let the reload animation play in order to shoot again. o The Shot on the Run feat is now more accurately Reload on the Run. If you have this feat, you will play the reload animating while moving. o The Rapid Shot feat now speeds up your reload animation, as well as a few other animations in the shot sequence. o The Rapid Reload feat speeds up the reload time for crossbows (and only crossbows) by a fair amount.
I would just like to comment that ranged combat kicks all sorts of ass now. My barbarian is gathering cobwebs because I've been having so much fun with my archery-focused ranger. It's fun, involves a bit of strategy and twitch, and seems nicely balanced with respect to melee.
