bug Construction / placement & cleanup bug

Question

Hello. I usualy don't go on forums posting about issues that are probably my own stupidity at work but here goes.

I watched some videos and after me and a friend joined a server on exile I quickly found an axe and chopped some wood. After that I made a campfire. I tried the placement and found out pressing "space" does nothing for me.

Even worse I found out that attempting to end my attempt at placing the campfire made the campfire placement ghost stay there. Permanently. And it is no ghost.

Infact out of curiosity I checked to see if I could walk on it. And I can. Aswell as I tried to push this bug to see if it could be abused in a bad way. Turns out one could use this bug to build an infinite ammount of not realy existing campfires in a staircase to heaven kind of way and then jump down with a parachute.

The reason I am posting this is the fact that I don't think this bug is down to my stupidity. Because when setting up an exile server of my own. I completely removed and reinstalled my own arma 3 hoping it would fix my bug. No luck.
And I am certain it must be something me specific because I called my friends in to ask them if they have it. And they were able to simply place the campfire with no issue unable to reproduce the error.

Any idea's to how this could be? The fact only I seem to be able to reproduce it after a full reinstall must mean its clientside (since friend don't have it) and somehow survived a full wipe. Any help to fix this would be greatly apreciated because I wanted to play this gamemode for its construction and survival aspect. Construction currently doen't work for me.

I will be monitoring this thread for a while.

Thank you in advance.

I am going to stop you right here. 
Fireplaces require a Territory to be placed.
Any time you attempt to place the campfire outside of a territory you will be unable to place it.
This is something they are working to fix to allow neutral fireplaces, however they have not yet finished with that yet.

Perhaps but the fireplace ghost should not remain and certainly not be interactable with for me to be able walk into other peoples bases with. And the odd thing is I was unable to place it but my friends did not have the incapability. Something weird has gone awry.

I am aware one requires territory to place it. And yet it still does not work for my placement inside territory.

We are having this too on SpearheadGaming with safes, walls, everything...
Plus, in some certain places we cannot place anything in our base INSIDE our territory which is annoying really. Maybe it has something to do with us building and placing stuff on a higher then ground level.
