Game locks up every time quest objectives update

Hi, long time user and lover of Carbonite but i have been having some issues for the last few builds that i wanted to bring up and see if there is a easy fix that has somehow escaped me, or if it is something that needs to be addressed on the code level.

Everytime that a quest objective updates, such as loot a quest item, kill a mob and so on, my game client completely freezes up for about 1 sec, i have noticed that if i am in a party with my wife who also has carbonite(but not this problem), whenever a quest objective updates for her i also freeze, it makes it practically impossible to run together because i will be constantly freezing as we quest. i am using the latest beta, have disabled all other addons, and have done a complete reinstall/setup and it still happens. i'm not sure if there is a problem in the quest module or if the quest data is being improperly handled somehow. hopefully someone has encountered this before and can help me out

So i updated to 5.3.0 Alpha 2 and am still having the same problem, has anybody else experienced this or found a fix for it? Having to turn off the quest module really takes away some of the great functionality of the addon.

Sounds like a communication issue.

if it was only when grouped I could see that... but since it's happening to him solo aswell i'm not sure. while the quest log window is delayed in it's updates, it shouldn't be causing a full client lockup... and with no errors or bug reports I really can't say what could be causing it

Is it happening for your wife aswell? or just yourself... and do you have bugswatter or some other lua error catching installed / enabled? can you install them to see if anything comes up?

Same for me. Everytime i get a new quest or any quest objective is updated the game locks for a second. Unfortunately there is no errormessage coming up in swatter. When i disable the quest module everything works fine. I tried to disable all other addons, but the error remains.

Edit: For me the problem exists only on my lvl 90 char. Actually questing with my alt on lvl 37 in western plaguelands works well with no locks.
