That's a weird compile error, in code that hasn't changed in several 
years. Was there anything in the CMake output prior to that that might 
indicate an issue?

My first guess, just from looking at the output, might be in 
If you replace
#include "config.h
#include <config.h>
does that make the compile complete? That's kinda weird that 2.3.7 would 
compile and not 2.3.8. Nothing changed in that whole directory, I don't

I see that. Will fix it.

Which data source?

That could be irritating, if you figure out how to reproduce it, let me 
know. I'll play with it a bit and see what I see.

Ah, indeed. Tellico saves the data as entered by the user, so two 
"equal" ISBNs could have different text. Let me muse on that and see if 
I can implement a custom search for ISBN values.

Tellico crashed? Any chance you can reproduce that? :) I hate crashing 
bugs with a passion...but yes, autosave would have been of benefit. Let 
me poke around to see if KDE itself has a solution.

Thanks for the feedback!
