BUG-204 – Detaching animated object stops sit animation and throws the avi into the air.
Description – Using the same scripts I have used in many other dining sets over almost 5 years, now when I detach a glass or fork containing an eating animation, the sit animation not only stops, but the avi suddenly pops up above the chair, in a seated position.
According to Monty Linden (reference) this and related bugs are being worked on.
