[duxhelp] Re: another crash

Joanie,

I strongly suspect that this is the issue we've just solved.  I'm gratified
to think that at least you didn't lose real work to find this.

I think I just confirmed this, but am reporting just in case it's a
different problem.  In order to test something else, I wrote "This is a
test." In a new Duxbury print document.  I then selected it, copied it, held
down Control V and kept it held down to rapidly fill up the document with
text.  It locked up around line 26 and sent CPU usage to 100%.

Take care.
Joanie

Lissa,

Brilliant.

The we think we've got it.  The problem is rather embarrasing -- and quite
general, insofar as we can tell.  The program could in fact lockup at just
about any time.  Faster typing presumably just brings it about faster.

It will be fixed for beta 4.  Best for now to be very careful not to depend
on DBT 10.6 beta 3 for time-critical work.  And save frequently while you're
using it.

Woops! All this time I should have said lockup, not crash. Thanks.
