I just had something weird happen to me that in thousands of hours played, has never happened before.
I'm 30+ hours into a 1.9 survival world and it was looking great. I hadn't died once, and I've slept in my bed at my main home dozens and dozens of times. Well I stupidly walked outside my house to kill a zombie that was bugging me but I didn't look behind me until I heard the dreaded "Ssssss".... BANG!! I'm dead
No big deal, I'll respawn 10 blocks away in my house.... Wrong!! I respawned at my original starting spawn, like 2000 blocks away and across an ocean!
This has never happened to me before in years of playing, if you sleep in a bed that becomes your default spawn point... Right??? The only thing I can think of, is that I think (not 100% sure) that the last time I slept in a bed was in a temporary house I made in a cave just before entering a large mineshaft.
Could this be the cause because the temporary house in the cave isn't there any longer, or is it a 1.9 bug???
Appreciate any insight as I'm really confused.
