Module editor crash on Windows help.
I can make the module editor crash every time when saving a new module
to a new library with release builds on Windows and was hoping someone
else would please confirm this for me before I file a bug report. I
want to make sure it's not just me. The problem does not occur on debug
builds but I get a ominous warning (which I'll post in the bug report if
someone else can duplicate this) in GDB about accessing a variable in
one of the MSVC libraries. If you have a release build of KiCad please
try the following steps:
1) Open Pcbnew and open the module editor (doesn't matter if launched
from KiCad or run from command line and with or without a board file
2) Select File->New Module from menu.
3) Type foo (or any other name you wish) when prompted for the module
reference and click the OK button.
4) Select File->Save Module into a New Library and name the library
foo (or any other name you wish) and click the save button.
At this point I get a "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Error" message box
complaining that "The application has requested the Runtime terminate in
an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team ( hey
that's me :) ) for more information.". I am using a debug build of
wxWidgets 2.9.4 and a KiCad build without scripting enabled although it
may not make a difference. Thanks in advanced for the help.
