Heya, would you have a repro mission to go with that?
The opted problem seems very strange, because the fn_dirTo function actually converts Objects to positions..

_pos1 = _this select 0;
_pos2 = _this select 1;

//if objects, not positions, were passed in, then get their positions
if(typename _pos1 == "OBJECT") then {_pos1 = getpos _pos1};
if(typename _pos2 == "OBJECT") then {_pos2 = getpos _pos2};

Yeah sure. I'm just forwarding this bug from a friend. But I've seen the error pop up numerous times.

Just go 4x after pressing radio alpha.
