Default Worst time for Connection issues is map update

The worst time for server lag has been found at Map update times, and I'm guessing until the map has finished updating...

I hop the 1am lag rights itself, otherwise I have lost about 198 Redstone and about 70 diamonds (it showed that I wasn't carrying any) and possibly 2-3 Hrs of digging lost

Every time I went down the tunnel to see if it was still there, the rendering engine suddenly stopped and I fell from the map, as I watched it disappearing into the sky above me, I got disconnected

My map seemed to have been current each time I logged back in, but yeah definately an inventory rollback.

Not too bad for me.
1 stack of coal
1/2 a stack of logs
1 stack of lightstone
1 stack of sand
1 tinderbox
and about 8 stacks of stone.

Nothing major (other than the coal I guess) so I got off lightly, won't know for sure until the server is back up.

Something else on the server box tonight was causing issues, so tonight on it's own wouldn't be an indication of map render causing the lag. I haven't been on at map render time other days recently so unsure if there's been any minor lag then.

Yeah this was a once off - won't happen again, until it happens to be a sunday and the 7th... (August 2011)
During periods of high load, all sorts of strange things happen with minecraft - it appears Notch hasn't coded alot of reliability into the engine, and depends on good timing to make things work.

And hopefully the bug will actually be fixed by then anyway!

Don't be too sure, if you check the link you'll see them noticing the error 2008, so they haven't fixed it in the last 2 years at least

Yeah lucid has the same problem (in fact this machine is lucid).
Its not a bad thing to check all the arrays, and I spose we should just fix it to not happen all at once.
