seems FIXED: Quest Arrow Disappearing

I've seen this posted before, and I've never seen a solution.

My husband and I are both using carbonite, the DEV version ...mine works fine, but his arrow that points the way to quests, likes to take off across the screen, if he catches it and drags it back, it works fine for a bit, until it flys off again, if he doesn't notice it in time , it flys off the side of the screen and doesn't return

any idea why this is happening or how to fix it?

he runs windows 7 and I have vista

other than that the only difference i know of is that he runs graphics on ultra and i have to run mine on low (yeah he got the first new gaming pc in the family lol mines next)

Do you have the most current DEV release from

if not please download and install it to check if that helps.

I thought that he did, but I had him redownload it just in case. He reinstalled it, we only run carbonite and carbonite quests and the arrow again did it's little run away escapade , maybe it just doesn't like him , but seriously, we've done everything i can think of, he's not running any addons that i am not , so I'm unsure what else to try

Carbonite as 6.2.0
Carbonite Quest 6.2.0

FYI I think I've identified what causes this. It's when you are in combat and are moving/running while being attacked. It happens regularly in newer zones or with newer quest lines, but I don't know if that's exclusively the case.

It's not, the problem is fixed and shouldn't happen anymore when I release today (waiting for my lunch time) ... it didn't matter what zone you were in, it happened when the window wanted to resize itself and couldn't due to combat lockdowns
