Known caveats

Occasionally causing taint issue due to using infamous UIDropDownMenu and with UIFrameFlash() because of usage of ChatFrame_AddMessageEventFilter.
Apparently sometimes the forwarding plugin fails to process the received message correctly and puts the forwarder in place of the sender and the unprocessed forward message as message text.
