I have been having a series of foldit crashes in windows vista after editing a script and saving it. I have found that if I open a script for editing, make no changes but modify the title and save it then run the script, it crashes foldit. On reopening foldit, the script will now run without problems. I attach a log file.

A work-around seems to be - after renaming the recipe,close the edit window, then reopen the renamed recipe and save it again. It then appears to work normally without crashing.

This problem of foldit crashes after script changes is worse with the new update. I attach the end of the latest error log. Is no-one else having this problem?

Yes, it is happening to me when I am modding scripts - just simple parameter changes - driving me nuts!
And I am being very very careful :-)

This problem is probably affecting lots of new people just trying scripts and trying to change parameters as well so I have raised the profile.

When this happens 10 times in a row, it gets beyond a joke. Please help.

I stumbled across this while doing some other cookbook fixes, I believe it's fixed now (for next release).
