Despite the many forum posts and JIRA reports, I don't know if the author's aware of this problem. There's been no indication, and for such a critical issue, that seems very odd. I'd like to ask if he is aware, and if it's on the to-do list.
The Rock-based PitBull is totally unusable for me, as whenever I try to copy a profile I get a lua error (the same one everyone else has been reporting) and the whole addon becomes buggy until logout or reloadui. So I've been using the now two-months-old version, hoping it's not going to be broken by game updates any time soon. Profile copying is an integral part of the addon, right? We ought to be able to do it?
If, as is apparent from the author's lack of responses to this issue, this is never going to be fixed, could we at least get confirmation of this? I would like to know if I'll ever be able to update PitBull and keep my profiles.
To fellow users of the addon, I want to ask if there's any workaround to this issue. If I scrap all my old profiles and re-create them from scratch (ugh...hours of work) in the new PitBull, will I /then/ be able to save them between characters? Are there any old WTF files I need to delete, any alternate way of salvaging the profiles, perhaps some sort of tribal rain-dance I could do? I would really like this addon to stop exploding on me.
