Hi Samatra,

thank you a lot for the uploading and for very exact repro (again), I assigned the issue to the programmers.

Have a nice day!

This bug is critical to our mission King of the Hill since it heavily relies on profileNamespace saved variables so I will appreciate if this bug could get higher priority and be fixed to be available in next stable update. Thank you.

we have fixed the issue. It should appear in a couple of days on Steam Dev.
Thank you very much.
