Subject Re: [CODE] issue 118576: Crash on close
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2011 09:27:29 GMT

I am supporting Andre's proposal to revert the config manager singleton 
fix and postpone it and the fixes regarding the unregistered config 
items to a time, when we have finished the "IP cleared" milestone.

Best regards, Oliver.
