I think the title says it all really. If you place a tripwire, it is only a couple of centimeters in front of your feet. Have not tested, but crouching could cause insta death. Part of this clip shows this fault; http://youtu.be/O1VodLL-1lw?t=55s

Please try this without any mods running. I was unable to reproduce your issue, in fact when I place a tripwire mine it has a timer which disables it until after ~10 seconds after it's been placed. I can run through the wire and nothing happens.
