Somewhere in his code there was a small error that didn't register until a search function (which is where the error logs said the problem was), my code, and his code (where the error actually existed) all interacted together. It doesn't surprise me at all that in a code base the size of SWTOR there can be multiple problems that all look similar and aren't easy to track.
