    TSM error related to the glyph and talent interface.

    When 5.0.4 hit, I've constantly been having issues with my glyph/talent interface.
    What usually happened was that when I tried changing one my glyphs or talents by using dust or a tome, nothing at all would happen.
    What I mean is that, when I right click one of my talents or glyphs, I get the pop up asking me if I'm sure, and that it'll cost one tome of clear mind.
    Usually clicking OK would cause that glyph or talent to be removed, and then you can choose a new one.
    For me, however, confirming would do nothing at all. The talent or glyph would still be there and not have been removed. No tomes were consumed either.

    Reloading my UI usually fixed the issue, and I could proceed with either action just fine. But, later on, if I were to do it again, same issue occured.
    I suspected it was an addon, but was never quite sure which one.

    Since updating TSM to the latest version, I'm almost sure it's TSM causing the issue. Why? Well, whenever I get that confirmation popup, and I accept the talent or glyph removal, another popup takes it's place, with the following message:

    TradeSkillMaster has been blocked from an action only available in the Blizzard UI. You can disable this addon and reload the UI. [Disable] [Ignore]

    Clicking Ignore will do nothing. TSM remains enabled, however, I'm still not able to remove glyphs or talents.
    Clicking Disable will reload my UI, disabling TSM in the process. I'm then able to remove talents and glyphs normally... but now I have to re enable TSM.

    Any assistance with this issue?

    Also, I'm not sure if it's TSM doing it, or another addon, but. I'm having another annoying issue lately.
    Data for quests and items from the server are being updated VERY slowly.
    When ever I loot a corpse that has an item in it that's not already cached, it literally takes a minute before I even see the loot table pop up.
    Initially, I had no idea why, but I observed something else that makes a little more sense...
    Sometimes I get an item spawned in my bags that also hasn't been cached locally yet, such as a quest item... what happens is that I can see the item icon in my bag, but mousing over it says "Retrieving Item Information"
    It hangs there for about a minute until finally the information is updated and I can see the tooltip as normal.

    The same delay occurs when accepting quests. My map will show the circled number quest icons, but mousing over them will show partial information, such as 0/3, when really it should be saying something like 0/3 Collected Fur.
    It's partial information, then after a minute, the info is all there.

    Again, don't know if this is also TSM causing this data delay, or it's another issue. But I'm almost certain now it's TSM messing with my glyphs and talents.

    I had that problem as well but it was The Undermine Journal addon not TSM that was doing it. It has since fixed itself or updated or whatever. But I shut addons off one by one to find the culprit and that was definitely it. A week or two later after updating I turned it back on and it was fine.

    I wonder if TUJ is the culprit behind my item info issue. hmm...
    I'll disable it and see if it fixes either issue. It's outdated anyways, and I have wowuction.

    Alright, so, I disable the TUJ addon, and now trying to change my glyphs or talents gives me the same error... except! it says it's IceHUD, and not TSM.
    What the hell is going on here?

    Haven't tested this enough to see if the looting info issue remained.

    It is probably a shared lib thats used by many addons causing the issue - look in the addon folder(s) for both tsm and icehud and see if there is a common lib being used

    I've also run into this issue many times in the past, but 99% of the time, it has been Move Anything that's been causing it. Disable/reload, changing glyphs, then enable/reload is a huge PITA, too.

    Interesting... I don't have Move Anything... so it may very well be a shared lib. I'll dig around and see what I can find.

    It is any addon that uses the StaticPopupDialog template. This is what blizz uses when you try to remove a talent or glyph and if an addon uses it, the variable will be tainted. Technically, it is an error on Blizz's part, but since they do not "support" addons they aren't going to change it anytime soon.

    I know this is starting to get off track of TSM, but hey, coders are eye balling this thread, so why not...

    I wonder if some simple addon can be whipped up to essentially stop this from happening. Like a patch of sorts, but in the form of an addon.

    The problem that is occurring is UI taint. What happens is some addon (let's call it X) interacts insecurely with a Blizzard-secured UI element during combat. Then, other addons interact securely with this Blizzard UI element, but it doesn't matter because the element has been tainted. When the user goes to do something that involves that element, the error will be appear and blame the last addon to have contact with it instead of (correctly) blaming Addon X, which caused the taint in the first place.

    The easiest (but still horribly tedious) way to find out the real culprit is to keep disabling the addons it tells you to disable. When the error finally stops, remove the LAST ADDON that caused the error to finally stop, and re-enable everything else.
