Hi, the issue is in the test object itself. Code that throws the error comes from init event handler which doesn't allow code suspension and the code is called, so it doesn't changes and still doesn't allow code suspension.

init = "(_this select 0) call compile preprocessFile ""\A3\weapons_f\data\scripts\bubbles.sqf"";";

The test code doesn't need to be in spawn, it doesn't effect anything. You need to change either the init code itself to:

init = "(_this select 0) spawn compile preprocessFile ""\A3\weapons_f\data\scripts\bubbles.sqf"";";

... or wrap the code inside bubbles.sqf into spawn.

And one last thing, it is not advisable to create anything on [0,0,0] coords.

"spawn compile preprocessFile"
is the same as execVM.

Should be fixed on latest dev-branch update
