This applies to numerous items. In order to perform any of the following functions, one must click and hold not once, but twice to begin the process:
- Wringing Out Moist Clothing Items (very consistent - happens basically every time)
- Splitting Long Sticks (this appears to be inconsistent - sometimes no double-click-holding is required)
- Various other items (inconsistently)
This likely has to do with the network code and/or inventory code, as it seems to be exacerbated whenever an item is pulled from inventory.
Strangely, I've rarely, if ever, had this happen with prepared food I am attempting to eat, so might relate to whatever subset of code applies to modifying an item.
