That's happened to me too.  You need to delete the directory
<Wimp$ScrapDir>.Photodesk2  and all its subdirectories and contents.
eg. *wipe <Wimp$ScrapDir>.Photodesk2 ~C F R ~V
The next time Photodesk starts it will recreate a 'clean' one.
You will of course lose any images you may have already had on
your Photodesk clipboard.

I was hoping the same - some things are fixed - some new problems
have arisen.

I also find it essential to stop the 'TwainPDIF' module from
loading by putting a '|' at the start of the relevant line in
!Photodesk.!Run - eg.
|IF "<TWAIN$Path>"<>"" THEN RMLoad <Photodesk$Dir>.Modules.TwainPDIF
otherwise I get my Iyonix crashing.
