I don't search through HALOT a lot. I use it more with links from the Analysis window and haven't experienced any of these crashes. I tried doing a dozen or so searches from the Lexicon browser but still no crash. Maybe someone else will have something to report. The bottom line is, you can report it, but I'm guessing it would be really difficult to fix until we can come up with a definite pattern or way to replicate the crash repeatedly. Then it's much easier to fix because they'll know what to look for.
Second, I have been looking up many different words in HALOT all day today and BW has crashed on me nearly two dozen times. It always happens when the HALOT module is open, and when I search for a new word or begin to scroll through an entry. But, it doesn't happen every time I do those things. I can't figure out any rhyme or reason to it beyond that.
Has anyone else experienced either of these problems?
