I see Zeronius partially addressed this while I was typing.
Not a bug. The following is speculative on my part based upon what's happening.

It's a preventive bit of tech that was added to address some past bugs. May have been a race condition of some kind. Players were able to slot equipment in the wrong slot. I inadvertently slotted personal armor into a shield slot on a boff. Apparently the server now does a sweep of your slotted equipment upon zoning in to a zone. Any illegally slotted equipment is booted and shoved into the Overflow bag.
