I can live with it ;-> It's pretty obvious why it's happening, and although 
it will catch a few of the younger programmers, it shouldn't phase the older 
ones. Maybe a fix for the version 2 software?

I should have actual crashes at's rock solid in that 
respect. There were a couple of niggling little things - mostly to do with 
cut and paste, stuff like that, but nothing that would stop a release. It's 
probably time to put this beast to rest...get on with the new version.

Just leave it...version 2 is where all the energy should be directed now 
(although alpha sorting the file lists would be bloody great, I might add 
that in if nobody objects). I was able to productively use it for some heavy 
sessions in the last week, and it ran well. My point being, it's good enough 
to keep the kiddies programming and to provide a platform for us to complete 
the next series.
