    This is the second time this happened on dustbowl for me, and only on dustbowl as far as I can remember. A normal server, no gravity bullshit or something... it was just like this for some reason. The weird thing is I could jump ON it for 1 second and than fall trough it. Other people didn't see it.
    What can cause this?

    On this image as spy I wanted to backstab snipers but.. I couldn't get on the stairs! This was actual geometry... couldn't walk on it!

    The door looked like this before setup but I couldn't run trough it (so what means the noclip brush was still placed right)

    This one was freaky too, could also float 1 second on it before I fall trough it..

    I saw stuff like that ages ago, it was really bad and after about 20 minutes in to a map the game became unplayable (every time I died it got worse) It happened on all maps too
    Then they went and upadted it and said they fixed it and the problem went away, now it only happens if I alt+tab

    that used to happen to me now and then. some people suspect it happens when you alt tab out of the game.

    I don't really think that is ALL true, this problem only happens to me once I "run out of OS Paged Pool Memory" and kind of glitch for 30 seconds. After I return from this glitch lots of props are messed up such as the doors and stairs, no matter what level.

    yeah, that used to happen to me alot, haven't seen it on dustbowl in awhile though, and i tend to alt tab frequently

    though...there is one door on my map that angles itself in some random direction all the time, no idea what causes it, but I intend to replace it at some point

    Alt tab can do interesting things. I have already seen invisible enemy soldiers, the turning door, wrong hologram over the CP, friendly pyro spy with enemy demoman model, so yeah, alt tab makes the game go crazy sometimes. The only solution is joning again to the server.
