Ya I should have waited to post this, it seems that its the code that I am passing that is causing the crash.

Revised steps to reproduce, crashes 100% of the time on 1.22

This is not a bug, you are creating infinite loop by opening gear from eh code which triggers eh again. Action gear triggers inventoryopened. You have to remove eh, check example on wiki.

thank you for reporting. As Killzone Kid states, this is not a bug. However, on Steam Dev version it should not be crashing the game anymore.
Thank you.

@Iceman What did you do, added it to 10,000 iteration limit?

I understand that it creates a infinite loop now, I was under the impression that the opened handler was able to act before the actual opening hence the ability to suppress the inventory dialog entirely.

I guess it does what is says, opens the inventory first then closes it when passed true.
