Out-Of-Bodying? NPC Conversation Bug

Don't know if this is a known bug, but twice now, after ending a conversation with an NPC, I return to the world to find TWO versions of the NPC(s) I was talking to, one of my avatar and my camera detached from my avatar. I can move around the room and have an out-of-body experience! Unfortunately, I can't get back IN my body.

I suspect what is happening is that sometime during an NPC conversation, your avatar and the NPC are despawned, and then they are respawned again at the end (sometimes in a slightly different position). But twice this was bugged for me so that the original avatars didn't despawn, and my avatar didn't respawn, leaving my camera without a body.

Not sure if this is related, but often after ending a conversation with an NPC successfully (no out-of-bodying), my framerate tanks. It goes from around 30 fps to around 3 fps. (I get about 60 fps at the best of times.) To get it back up, I either have to relog or set my graphics settings to HIGH and then back down to LOW. This seems reset the graphics somehow.

I have the same problem and it happens in one in every five cut scenes (conversations).

The cut scene ends and I am thrown out of body, I can even quick transit to another location and remain out of body.

It would be quite cool if it was a Dark Force OOB astral planeing skill.

I cant get back in again and have to relog to resolve it.

It is a major irritation. Is there a way of getting back into your body without having to relog?

Have logged a ticket on it, but from my other experiences so far with this game I suspect Customer support is snowed under
