TL;DR, thanks to Proditor & Shadowed
Edit: http://www.wowinterf...fo.php?id=16001 - Shadowed's somewhat cleaner version
- COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED is jacked up
- This means your combat log AND any addons that use that event get screwed up
- The current speculation is that it's because of an overflow problem caused by massive glitched spam (courtesy of Blizzard), as per Imbad's screenshot
- Periodically clear out the combat log using a command
- Either macro this
/script CombatLogClearEntries()and use it often (perhaps on your main nuke), or
- Use one of the addons
This is theoretical!
I have not tested this. I do not know if it works. Since this is stickied (?) it would be good to know if this actually works. o.O Knowing Blizzard it will be a long time (if ever) that this is actually verified by an authoritative source. Any Blue posts on the matter that you can track down would be awesome.

OKAY GUYS, I think I may have found a solution.
I had a feeling that the cause of this problem was a sort of overflowing in the combat log. I found this script online that essentially cleared your combat log of any data.
By macroing the script in with ALL of my abilities, my combat log has not died and my mods have been working since - but I do not have a combat log to go back and look at. It was worth the trade in my opinion.
Heres the script:
Instead of binding it to everything:
/run local f = CreateFrame("frame",nil, UIParent); f:SetScript("OnUpdate", CombatLogClearEntries);
Could create a quick addon that does this too.
More testers! If this works for everyone, I'm going to laugh very loudly.
