In creative and if the player is flying. The game does not properly register the new state of the player when the player exits a rideable entity. This causes the game to "think" the player is still flying while walking. Causing the player to repeatably fall from the sky or be re-positioned.
Steps to reproduce:
- Make sure the player is flying in creative
- Click on a rideable entity like a minecart / boat / horse (to ride the entity)
- Exit the entity (jump single press or shift)
note: Do not press jump twice (or repeatably) this can cause the player to enter the flying state again
- Move up to a higher altitude by holding jump or climbing blocks (jump single press) or move to a different position (again be careful to not press jump to fast)
- Notice the player position might reset while moving or the player appears to be falling from the sky.
Double tapping jump resets the issue. The player enters flying mode again.
