Your problem is already acknowledged by the devs.
Experienced something similar. As soon as zeds are in the perimeter and chase you, everything starts to delay (eating, BANDAGING, drinking etc).
It seems the Server does not know where you are, Zombie is chasing you to a spot,
you've been 30 seconds before, but OFC he can hit you, so hes 100m away and hits
the air, you'll get damage.
Had multiple freezes in a row, not in every session. Not only when chased by zeds.
Supermarket backdoors you can add to the list. When the server is under heavy load zeds walk through walls too.
It happens with all items placed on the bottom of your backpack that are 2x2 or bigger.
I skinned and quartered a Boar in EXP 0.47.124558 and crafted a leather backpack successfully.
To the machete, i think its intended, even if it makes no sense, but a machete could probably be not sharp/thin enough for this kind of action.
Had the same problem 0.46 EXP - Had a ammo box at the bottom of the hunting backpack. I didnt even noticed until i rewatched my own footage, ammo box got replaced and rearranged by other items in the backpack.
