Flying DISCONNECTS - when will this be fixed?

Technical Support
How much longer is the problem with flying and disconnects going to continue? Or is there some kind of fix somewhere that I am not aware of?

2 problems (this is on a WinXP machine)

1) Using a FP to send a toon somewhere, minimize to go on the web or something for a couple mins, come back after the toon would have landed, open up the WoW window - and sitting on the disconnect screen.

2) Manually flying, and while WoW is minimalized (because it is so boring to watch flying), when the toon passes from one zone to another - D/C.
Same problem...pretty sure it's all of WoW.

It is super annoying.

Maybe in the next patch? or expansion?

Would be nice to know why.

Edit: Guy in my thread said the workaround is windowed mode, bah.
Windowed(fullscreen) :) Sadly you take a performance hit going into this mode.

I forgot how long this has been happening. I swear it was before Cataclysm.
It's been mentioned as happening since the last part of ICC was opened up in early 2010 (almost 2 years now) patch 3.3.3 or 3.3.5?

It has actually been documented to have happened since the 4.01 patch hit in October 2010.

Actually, now thinking about this, it started back in Wrath sometime. I forgot about that.
I got to the point that I hated flying from Dalaran to one of the starter Northrend zones, because I often tabbed out, and then was D/C'd because of it.

So, definitely much longer than Wrath and 4.0
