Hey all, I ran into a nasty client crashing bug that I'd rather none of you hit, so I figured I'd post a warning.

You know how sometimes, due to lag, you'll beam off a planet or spacedock and end up standing in space as your character? Well, last night it happened but I was in the middle of a bunch of ships, so I figured I'd entertain them while I waited for my ship to load and dance for them.

DO NOT DANCE IN SPACE!

If you type "/em dance" while your character is in space, you will crash the client and force the patcher to do a file verification, which means not only will you get booted from the game, you'll have to wait 10-15 minutes while the patcher checks your game files before you can log back in.
I've repeated this bug three times, just now, and it looks like performing any persisting emotes while your character is in space will crash the client and force a file verification.

I'm guessing that once they get the avatar models transferring over properly this will remedy itself, but until then, if your character is in space, don't move and don't emote. Just wait 10-20 seconds and your ship will eventually appear.

You can cancel the check, but yeah I've found out if you do anything whilst that bug is in effect it'll really crash the client out.
