      Description

      Workaround

      Run /spawnpoint, and then close and reopen the world.

      The bug

      After dying and respawning in 20w13a without a valid spawn point, the game is in a softlocked state. The player will have a duplicated version of themselves standing at the same location, and they won't be able to move or interact with the world in any other way. This even persists after closing and reopening the world. This affects all game modes.

      When this happens, the following will be printed into the game console:

      To reproduce

      1. Run /spawnpoint @s ~ ~ ~ while in spectator mode somewhere underground (so that the spawnpoint would be blocked
      2. Switch into Creative, Survival, or Adventure mode
      3. Die
      4. Respawn
        Your game is in a softlocked state
