**REPORTED** Bubble blocks reset NPC housing

    The new bubble blocks (sold by the party girl) are a valid wall and spawn block for NPC houses. I thought I finally had a block that could be used to separate NPC houses and act as a spawn block without blocking my projectiles. However, soon after setting an NPC to live in a house which incorporates bubbles, they will leave the house. They never stay assigned to their houses for long. After teleporting away and then back, I find all the houses unassigned again.

    I was about to report the same bug. My NPC moved himself out, and into invalid housing. I've attached a picture of where I assigned him, and where he assigned himself.

    @Ferretwings' case looks like Bubble Blocks simply don't act as actual blocks (since they really aren't, I'd rather call them furniture), and Wizard would simply reset it's flag so it matches the house.

    I'm talking about how bubbles don't act as a room separator, and the two rooms are "one", in game's eyes.

    [EDIT]
    If Bubbles were blocks, then you could place things like Tables and Chairs on it (correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that would be illogical, even for Terraria *cough cough* "RE-Logic" *cough*). That is more than an excuse for them to not "create" rooms.

    [EDIT2]
    Or I just doofed and it really is a bug. All possibilities possible.

    Here is another example. I made both houses valid, and assigned NPCs to both houses. One NPC moved himself out.

    Definitely looks like something is up here; the issue is reported. :)

    You can usually use platforms for most of the house, as long as there are a few solid blocks for the npcs to stand on.
