    Severity 3 is inappropriate. There is no known workaround for this. Resetting the position on the client is overridden by the interpolation method in NetworkTransform. Time since last sync from the server is not accessible, so the only way to set correctly is with the fix in PR 19 or find a way to force server to re-send position.
