have to be run manually, some patches applied live but we usually see the script that installs
them and it has not been the case for a long time).

no crash, the moment I move the cursor to a certain place, crash). If I type something before
the crash and save (no need to close), it usually fixes the problem.

For testing purposes and upload could you not change every character to x (I remember a regular
expression in the Forum to do that) and replace all photos with something non private?
