The settings panel errors out even manually accessing it. I thought the problem I had with it the other day was because I was trying to use it and it went wrong. But it seems any loaded addon, so far, seems to trigger an error when you save .. every time .. but not if you unload all the addons, even bugsack/buggrabber.
I am wondering if its because of what that part of the game does and if the addons in question does the same thing it interferes..
nUI causes wow to have a hissy fit on both the settings panel and the edit mode system. nUI utilises saved variables and reparents blizzards frames.
My action bar test addon doesn't have an issue with either of them as it doesn't do either of those
My portal addon doesn't have problem with the edit mode system but does with the settings, because it uses the saved variables system.
I'll have to do some more specific tests of this like just to see if my theory is correct with the same simple test addon and just see what happens.
But that said, when I looked at my saved variables on a test addon I recently made that had the same settings error appear, the settings were written to the file. Something somewhere is just not liking it in Blizzards code somewhere.
