Folks,

Here is another way IDL 8.0 is fragile.

I've just crashed IDL 3 times in the last 10 minutes. I think
I can do it pretty reliably now.

I have a main-level program. No objects. I put a breakpoint
in the main-level program. Now run it. Stop at the breakpoint.
Move a couple of steps. Now, without thinking make a change
to the program and hit the compile button instead of the
resume button. About half the time, IDL will just completely
disappear. And I mean QUICKLY, and without a trace. I have
the compile button set to "save and compile".

Cheers,

David

Is that on Windows? I never had problems like that in the release
version, but I use IDL in Linux nearly all the time.
