Subject: Re: FR 6.3 max number of files

Date: Mon, 01 Feb 2010 20:27:47 +0100

The good: I can see in the error log you sent me in what function the problem occurs.

The bad: It does not happen on my computer even if I make the same settings as you.

More good: I have made a new version, with extended logging in that particular function. It will tell me more exactly where the problem is. Please try it and send me the error log!
