That is 99.99% an issue of 'script ran too long' error and it will show if you have show lua errors ticked in Game Options -> Help or a bug catching addon installed.

Since WoW 5.x the game imposes a time limit on scripts executing in combat, we don't know exactly what the limit is but only way to avoid it is to defer execution of scripts that might involve nested loops or parsing large tables etc to out of combat.
