Boo-yah, I think I’ve caught the slippery sucker that’s been screwing up my Poll menu shortcut. This is probably the closest my life will get to a long-running comic book too, because it’s an old foe I thought was long-dead: NETCONNECTION.CALL. Yup, I have yet again fallen into the pitfall of asynchronous communication between the client and server. The good news is, like many overconfident recurring villains, I still know how to defeat it. Ha-HA!
EDIT: Wow, I celebrated FAR too early. Yeesh.
EDIT: Further digging into the problem reveals that I’m calling the method that remotely opens the visible menu itself at a point where, thanks to NC.CALL, it’s been erased but not yet repopulated. This will take some finesse.
