WDI01 of WhoDunIt for instance, I built that skybox with anchors throughout that entire map without the knowledge of that limitation and it was always a coin toss whether it worked properly or not. This is merely for future reference.
I'm exactly not sure which problem you are referring to. Do you have a minimal example wad that allows to reproduce the problem?

I could whip something up on my next day off real quick and give it a test run, only problem is I don't know why my connection isn't allowing me to host so I might need someone to throw it up.

Of course, I could be mistaken on how this works because as of now I can't really recall any other actors being effected this way, but that's the first thought that popped in my mind when I read about the packet increase.
Information about actors is sent in reliable packets, i.e. all commands are guaranteed to arrive in the correct order and no commands are lost. So if you weren't disconnected, this doesn't sound like a packet loss problem.
Again, I could be mistaken but from what I can recall from it happening, it always seemed to happen for everybody unless the map was reloaded leading to thought that "well, maybe it's some kind of disconnect between the server and clients and possibly something to do with the reliability of the actor placements". Something along those lines. That being said, now I'm even more interested in what it could possibly be. We'll see if we can replicate the issue here in a few days and I'll see if I can send you some examples.
