The server-side deployment to the three release candidate channels (Bluesteel, LeTigre and Magnum) during week #13 included updates focused on reducing instances of inventory loss, and also included some server-side code clean-up. Unfortunately it also brought with it the potential to create a few inventory-related issues.
The problems are reported in BUG-8877, and have the potential to affect anyone running a version of a viewer that does not have the recent AIS v3 updates (e.g. the current release of Firestorm and, I believe, Singularity), and / or any viewer with or without AIS v3 updates which is running with HTTP Inventory disabled. However, they will only occur when you are actually located on an RC channel region, and then only in situations described below.
You can ascertain whether or not you are on an RC region via the viewer’s Help > About floater.
