Inventory items disappear in multiplayer
We've twice experienced problems in a local (TCP/IP) multiplayer game where items disappear permanently – a far more annoying version of the BG/BG2EE duplication bug.
In one case, my wife was moving an item from one character to another: it disappeared from the first but never appeared in the target. In another, simply unequipping a shield caused it to disappear.
I believe this may have something to do with the other player (the host in both cases) engaging with a merchant or, possibly, opening the character sheet dialog as we were buying some new gear both times.
Both systems were running the release OS X version.
