One glitch I noticed when testing on the PTR recently was that my DPS meters caused ridiculous, terrifying framerate issues. The issue's been long known on the forums, of course. Skada, the addon I use, had been completely unusable on the 4.1 PTR for pretty much its entire existence.

It seems the issue is with addons that parse the combat log. There supposedly are fixes available, but at present, if you're running a damage meter or other combat log parse, you should most likely turn off your out-of-date addons until they've been updated. I can attest that at present, Skada does not seem to work at all with 4.1, and I'd definitely recommend turning it off.

Updated: Check your favorite addon sites for updates to patch 4.1. While I can't promise your personal favorite addon will be up to date, Skada has released an update that makes it usable with the current patch as of 5:29 PM eastern.
