Had just brutally slaughtered the Infiniticorp insider, and was chatting on New Players chat, and one of my 6 multibox game clients got 'stuck'. Could send messages out of it, but not see any messages either sent with a tell or in any chat channels. Could not move, could not target anything. Using ESC to bring up Quit Menu and picking 'quit to desktop' dropped the character offline and out of group, but the game client kept running until I used /quit to get it to drop out.
I was multiboxing a group of 6, hunting Strand Vultures in Arduinne. One of my clients -- zargJE -- got 'stuck' -- it was still in formation, still online and in group. However it was frozen and not moving with the group -- to that client's view. The rest of the properly-working clients saw that one still in formation. I could send receive messages to that character but they would not show on it. Messages sent out from the character were never seen. I could do actions within the 'stuck' game client that didn't involve server communication, like open/close inventory and character info -- so it appeared working just not communicating to server. Eventually got tired of this, having run out of ideas on what to test, and just /quit out to gather and upload this proxylog. This is an interesting failure mode that I've seen all too often in raids on the play server too, where one client just gets stuck. sometimes it recovers, sometimes it doesn't. But its super annoying while its happening...
