Playing on Win8/64.
I have recently completed the intro section with the dragon and acquired an "incinerated" critical effect on myself. (The flames)
It should last for five seconds, but it never stopped. It's still shown as active in the "get into the monastery" section. As well as a critical effect with some blood drops, that started on a one second timer when I began the game in the tent with Triss. Still going on at an neverending "one second" three sections later.
Is this a known occurance, and if yes: Can I do something to end it?
