If not, could we possibly add this option in the config?

Thanks is advance.
The overlapping units is a long time lasting issue :/
As well as insane skin switching issue.
Just got a chunk of both today, starting with overlapped frames for our 8 man party, and when we grew to 12-16 people, with every group containing no more than 4 members, it was ALWAYS changing to 10m skin on each raid composition change, despite me putting it back to 25m again and again.
Not to mention, you can't assign same skin to more than one "group" mode... which is highly frustrating.

I'm sorry but this is just incorrect. While your code should not be able to crash the client, it demonstrably is. Your addon needs to be updated to either force the predicted heals in the client off, turn its own predictive healing off, or at least detect these settings and prevent the conflict causing this error.

Addon authors may not have access to debugging tools for the WoW client, but that hasn't stopped us yet. But then they aren't really needed here, as you have already been informed what the issue is.

They still have ways of coding around bugs in the client so their addon does not trigger a #132 error.

And given AtlasLoot was causing people to crash with a #132 error just before Cata come out and they fixed it a day later it's apparently not that hard.

The Language maybe designed that way but it's up to Blizzard to implement it in their ciient.

In a "perfect world" this would mean that no addon can make the wow client crash.

But we all know that we are not living in a perfect world and that Blizzard have bugs in their wow client.

If an addon happens to trigger an execution path that leads to a crash then it's the addon making the wow client to crash.

Remove the addon and the client doesn't crash. Unfortunately given the timing Blizzard have on updating it's implementation of Lua and their API it's quicker to get an addon author to code around whatever bug it's encountering that causes that addon to make the wow client crash.

You can argue that _technically_ addon's shouldn't cause the wow client to crash but the results speak for themselves.

If your host application crash, it's the problem in host application.
Memory leaks in addons can cause wow to crash. Its proven. I see this daily where addons crash wow. I'm a forum reg on the Tech Support Forum.

The problem is the predictive healing Blizz implemented and the predictive healing implemented by Healbot before Blizz did their own, is conflicting, causing the crash.

Its an EASY fix tho. Just have your addon set the cvar predictedHealth to 0, and your users will stop crashing.

Crashing

Healbot is now causing wow to crash to an error 132 in 4.0.6.

To get around this, disable "incoming heals" in the WoW Interface.
Alternatively, you can disable predictive healing in healbot.

When this addon is updated, the predictedHealth cvar will need to be set to 0 when healbot's predicted healing is used, to stop from crashing wow..

4.0.6 nourish fix

edit HealBot_Init.lua at line 253 to read
Code:
        [HEALBOT_HEALING_TOUCH] = {
            CastTime = 1.5, Mana =  25, Level  = 78 },
 
        [HEALBOT_NOURISH] = {
            CastTime = 1.5, Mana = 1400, Level = 8 },
instead of
Code:
        [HEALBOT_HEALING_TOUCH] = {
            CastTime = 1.5, Mana =  25, Level  = 3 },
 
        [HEALBOT_NOURISH] = {
            CastTime = 1.5, Mana = 1400, Level = 78 },
