      Cast into two-deep water and the bobber will often glitch to one block above the surface of the water. Other casts may cause the bobber to glitch between 1 meter under water and the surface. In this case it still produces bubbles as it moves.

      The bobber's up-and-down movement is very similar, possibly identical to what you sometimes see when villagers and other mobs sink into the ground, except here you have a floating item rather than a sinking one and it never turns black. It's /not/ the same as the bobber's normal movement, which may or may not be superimposed on top of the glitchy behaviour. I've experienced the problem with sinking mobs for some time now (not seen yet in latest build however), but this bobber behaviour is completely new to me.

      BTW, this behaviour begins /after/ you've cast the line.

      The height of the bobber depends on the where the player aims when casting the rod. Looking down the bobber is above the water, looking up the bobber is below the water, the bobber is on the surface if the player looks directly horizontal. (1.9-pre2)
