that gets this, or has other people experienced it?
By this I mean pressing F to interact with something or pick up and item, only to have your character get stuck in a run cycle which you cannot get out of...
Killed me a few times now has this

Yeah I've experienced it a couple times as well. When picking something up with "F" sometimes, instead of picking said item up, my character runs about 10 feet forward instead of picking the item up. During these 10 feet you can't use skills/dodge/whatever, so you basically can't defend yourself.

This has killed me a couple of times during the Solid Ocean fractal when, instead of picking up a reflective crystal, my character decides to go for a walk, only to get killed by the Jade Maw beam attack. Very annoying indeed...

Never seen this. The only annoying F problem I have is when an NPC is too close to an action and the game assumes I want to talk to a random NPC rather than perform said action but I wouldn't classify that as a bug.

it sometimes happens when you're in the process of running while trying to pick something up, it's an annoying bug, the way to prevent it is to stop moving before pressing the key

Happens to me frequently during the Maw bonus level in fracs and is one of the bugs I hope they fix soon.

You have to make sure you've stopped running before picking up a bundle, but it's easier said than done sometimes.

Yep, also get it on Jade Maw.

I've found you can stop it by clicking both mouse buttons together.

This happens to me daily in all fractals and dungeons where I want to press F to pick something up. It also happens regularly to many others in my guild who complain about it daily as well. I hope ANet is aware of this. Has anyone done a /bug or posted on ANet's forum yet? I should probably go search their forum to be sure someone's brought it up. I never think about it unless it's happening!

Same bug happens in the cliffside fractal at the last boss. When you are in melee, the boss drops his hammer and you still autoattack when pressing F to pick it up, you just won´t stop autoattacking instead of picking up that goddamn hammer.

This bugs also happens anyhwhere else where you have another action running when you want to pick something up.

Never had that bug as stated, but there have been a few times where I try to rally someone from down only to have the game immediately cancel the action.

I have noticed this a few times in WvW when i seem to have a "F = Search" and a "F= Finish enemy" very near to eachother... i am still able to do the action, but my character is glued to the ground and cant walk anymore. Luckily for my my main has a skill that moves me back. At such moment that is the only way to get out (or using a waypoint ofcourse)...

I get it everywhere...always while running and trying to interact on the fly. It's very annoying.

I have definitely run into it and it is quite annoying having your character run off to the middle of no where for no apparent reason. Will say that I've been lucky enough to not have it happen during any dire situations, but it is still quite obnoxious.
