Quote from ElsiaSadly no. It's a mechanism for me to get feedback if something breaks (basically by telling people to create a debug tab).
Is there any particular grievance this creates, i.e. do I need to create a build without it?
Erm, no, as long as it's not consuming much cpu resources while trying to write to a chatwindow which doesn't exist. I was planning to use similar mechanism for an addon I'm trying to make (I'm just a beginner :) ) and accidentally ran into this. I'll just rename the chat window to Debug2 or whatever.
EDIT: forgot to add, I'm one of the thousands (if not millions) of users of your addon; and very happy with it. Thanks for all the work you put in it!
