2) There is some rapid login, set avatar, unset avatar, logout sequences, which is repeated by the same several people around the time leading up to when the KI issue started. Which does cause a number of errors in the vault notifier (the thing that sends out the notification of player online status and location in game). It is possible that the rapid timing (faster than the normal client can do) is getting the server into a strange timing situation that messes up its internal notification tables.
Could this be login, set avatar, crash; with the Auth server creating "virtual" unset and logout messages? Or were the unset & logout messages definitely sent by the client code?
Yeah this is my first thought as well. The last two times the server's been restarted, the first time I try to login I've been getting an error while trying to Set Avatar then crash. If I start up again and login, it works. I know other people have experienced that as well. It been happening on a per-avatar basis from what I can tell.
