I encountered a bug in DOpus 10.0.3.4 (on Windows XP (32-bit (x86)) running DOpus in French on a USB-stick) which makes it unusable for me:
When I search for duplicates (especially when I have 2 listers open), DOpus crashes immediately.
I ran the same actions on v. 10.0.3.3 and previous and this never happened. Now it's almost all the time on the new version.
I ran a quick duplicate search on some files on Windows 7 64 bits and DOpus didn't crash. But it crashed for whatever reason while I wasn't using it! This shows to me that the last version is quite unstable.
Now I tried it again on my Windows XP computer from the USB stick and it crashes most of the time when I run a duplicate search. Is it because I have 2 listers open with several tabs? Because I run the duplicate search inside a library? Because there are network drives connected? Because I run DOpus in French? There may be many hypotheses. There is no crash dump and I do nothing unusual about duplicates.
As for the moment it crashes, sometimes it happens when I just open a new tab and go to the existing Duplicate collection. Or I go into a folder, open the duplicate search panel, set the search on the current folder by MD5 checksum (the other options are set to default), then DOpus would crash when I press the Search button.
At one moment I thought maybe my existing Duplicate collection was corrupted, so I manually removed the Duplicates collection from the DOpus configuration folder, then I restarted DOpus, but I still run into the same problems. For as long as I remember, my Duplicate collection was void at that time.
I even restarted with a new set of options (I removed all the setting files), but this crash still happened to me with the default options.
I'm not doing anything different from what I used to do all the time and nothing significant that I can think of, but I hope this bug will be fixed soon.
N.B.: Jonathan Potter asked me to report problems with the beta versions via the resource centre.
