Yes. Small popup with just that message and an "OK" button.

Tellico Version 2.3.9 Using KDE Development Platform 4.14.6.

Yes there is. And I successfully was able to read that which suggests it's
one of the last seven books I added. I then tried to add those back in one
at a time, and hit Save and Quit after each one. I was able to do that for
3 of them.  I'm now got to the point where the library.tc~ file no longer
wants to Open either. It seems fine to Save and Quit after each one though.

(I do have have the earlier on in a backup on another disk as well though).

The only extra messages I see from the command line are:

$ ./tellico /tmp/library.tc
tellico(27500)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "edit_undo" with 
tellico(27500)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "edit_redo" with 

I'm happy to send you my library.tc file privately if that would help
and/or tell you the ISBN of these last seven books. I added them by
just adding the ISBN number and Saving and then doing an Update
from Amazon to try to fill in the rest of the details.
