I'm getting an error which I can't track down to an addon. I'm posting here because I have no idea where to look.
I know, the first line in Buggrabber should show the offending addon, but it doesn't. The line is:
Interface\\FrameXML\\UIParent.lua:2477: attempt to compare nil with number:
There is no FrameXML-Addon and no UIParent.lua in my addon folder.
I'm getting this error very frequently (counter=1734 in last session) and during Wintergrasp battle Buggrabber is getting flooded with this error and stops recording it.
I looked up UIParent.lua in Tekkubs online repository and line 2477 in Version 3.1 is about some function UIFrameFlash_OnUpdate - in case somebody understands this information. We have 3.1.1 now, so I don't know ...
Is there a place to look up errors? Google didn't come up with anything. Somewhere I found the suggestion to reinstall WoW but I don't think it has anything to do with the game files because the error happens whenever I use my addon files - be it on my system or on somebody elses. I'm using 50+ addons, so disabling 49 addons before Wintergrasp and 49 others before the next battle is not really an option.
UIParent.lua:3780 is where the error happens, but it is called from one of your addons most likely. You should be able to see which addon is causing this by looking at the full error message, as it will show with some stack depth.
"Update them all": A lot of addons don't get update love by their authors ...which does not mean they wont't work anymore. And anyway - this was not my question.
"You should be able to see which addon is causing this by looking at the full error message, as it will show with some stack depth."
Where do I get that full message from? I have Buggrabbers logfile. There is no more information.

I did the search thing. didn't find the uiflameflash. How on earth do i fix this?
You can start by fixing the typo in your search.
It's UIFrameFlash, not uiflameflash :)
Secondly to search your addons folder for some text IN the files
you either need to have that folder indexed by your Operating System,
or use a grep-like utility or text editor with "search in files" capability.
Give some more details as to how you went about searching and maybe we can help.
