What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
There I was, about 1/2 way through my GaP when the Merchant appeared, later a Genie, then another Merchant. I was under the impression that during GaPs this was NOT supposed to happen.
How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
REPLACE THIS TEXT WITH YOUR ISSUE. e.g. Was this a once-off bug or has it been a consistent issue? Does it only happen after doing a particular game mode?
Steps to make it happen again
The only weirdness prior was I had connectivity issues, so I turned my WiFi on and off to re-establish connection. That’s when they started. I’m guessing some state about what was happening (a GaP) got lost for the gift-givers, tho gnomes appeared just fine. I am not really willing to try this again to see if the same bug happens – those GaPs aren’t free.
