    A couple of times recently, I've noticed items missing from my backpack that then re-appear later.
    First example: I recalled to a location then was getting set to use my rune book again. Looked in my backpack, and the rune book was not there. Moused over every cell in the grid to make sure it wasn't just the graphic disappearing - nope, no rune book. I had a macro to recall home so I used that and voila, the runebook was again in my backpack.

    Second example: I died in the Abyss (stepped on a goblin trap while trying to escort Mr Brightwhistle out of there) and resurrected at the Silver Sapling. Double-clicked my corpse there to get my items but nothing appeared in the backpack. Went back to where I died to see if somehow the items were there, but no dice. I then recalled home and suddenly all the items re-appeared in my backpack.

    Anyone else experience something similar?

    Yes I have that too, sometimes. There seem to be several things that may cause this. One is, when recalling from an open book and fizzling (for example, accidantly clicking on sacred journey with the mage character). Then the book becomes invisible, even to mouse-overs (as opposed to the gloves/sleeves/pants bug). Closing and opening the backpack usually solves it for me.

    Ahh, didn't try to close and reopen the backpack. I'll give that a shot the next time it happens.

    It is caused by a bug in the new Generic Gump System, i have analyzed it a bit and described it a bit more in the Current Bug thread. But the Devs aware of this problem and would fix it soon i would say.
     
  5. Sometimes closing/opening the pack doesn't work for me, but CTRL-R always does. It will refresh everything on your screen, so you will need to manually re-open your backpack if you don't have that set to automatically open on log in.

    CTRL-R also fixes many other graphical glitches.
