[LDM #GNY-856216]: LDM 6.12.6 has crashed twice today with this message...



Gilbert,

I'm glad you found the solution. I'll still have to work on pqact(1), though.

Let me know if setting myself on fire will help with your burn pile. :-)

> 1. I am an idiot;
> 2. The LDM has a bug!
> 
> The first one has been fixed. See: a few days ago, I went on

> keeping the latest version, 7.1. Inexplicably, and I don't know what I was

> Soooo...

> In the midst of a senior moment, I uncovered a bug in the LDM: point your
