HorsemanSummonFix
Version: 1.1.7b
by: Toppazz [More]
As of October 26th, Patch 4.0.1a was released noting that it has corrected this issue. You should no longer need an addon to prevent cogwheels from crashing your client.

HorsemanSummonFix was created to address the current client crashes caused by mousing over specific objects. If you notice additional crashes, feel free to note what is causing them in the comments and I'll add them to the addon.

Thanks to Vladinator for suggesting a solution that works across all clients.

I am no longer receiving crashes while summoning the HHM so I will not know when the issue is fixed. Feel free to leave a comment for other users so they can know when this addon becomes unnecessary.
1.1.7b Rolled back (further) to 1.1.1

1.1.7a Rolled back to 1.1.3

1.1.7 Attempts to display single line tooltips by rebuilding them to prevent crashing

1.1.3 Will now only disable one line tooltips inside of specified zones

1.1.1 Fixed an issue where player location wasn't detected properly because of incorrect map reading

Since the tooltip interaction with the Headless Horseman pumpkin is what's causing the freezes/crashes, disabling the tooltip (while in the SM Graveyard) is the workaround fix. If you can't deal with losing your tooltips for a 1 minute encounter, then yeah, guess you need to uninstall it.

It seems that the issue is resolved for me. I've rolled back to v1.1.1 (as v1.1.7b) but will not be able to notify everyone when the the crash is no longer an issue.

Installed the addon and still crashing on hovering over pumpkin.

I was in Zone 341... checked and was in Zone 20 and still crashed when I hovered over the pumpkin.

This sounds like the issue this addon is set to fix. Some tooltips are causing the client to crash without firing any errors. Either way, addons shouldn't be able to cause hard lock ups like you are describing.

Sorry; was just checking for consistency. I checked with a couple of guildmates and some of them were having the same problem you were. GetCurrentMapAreaID() is based on what your map currently shows apparently. For some people (and I'm not sure why), the map isn't updated on zone change so it returns the number from the zone they were previously in. This can be fixed by setting the map to the current zone manually.

I'll upload the fix in 5-10 after I can confirm it working.
