Fixed a “blocked action” error when applying glyphs since WoW Patch 5.0.

    Just out of curiosity what did you have to fix to stop the blocked message with glyphs. So I can fix a few other addons if the authors take to long 🙂

    Blizzard “leaked” the variable name “_” (yes, a single underscore) as a global variable. Since Blizzard code is “secure”, anyone else who leaks the name causes that variable to become “tainted”, causing the “action blocked” error the next time Blizzard code tries to read or write it.

    It’s common convention to use “_” for values that get discarded, but one has be careful to label it “local” in order to avoid this problem. (Well, we’d also have avoided this problem if Blizzard had made sure theirs was local, but that’s water under the bridge now.)

    Last I was aware, the Mists foods didn’t work for pet feeding. Luckily that’s been fixed, and the folks maintaining the PeriodicTable library have already added many of them. If you have the latest AutoBar or another mod that uses LibPeriodicTable-Consumable, you’ll find Feed-O-Matic already uses the new foods. If not, I’ve posted a new FOM update with the new library.
