0.48 : crashes if subfolders contain GIF/PSPbrush only

Post by Eyael » Wed May 02, 2012 11:41 pm

Hi Pierre,

I have sent you emails regarding this bug yesterday. I just hope you received them and I'm only posting here in hope someone else has encountered the same problem because I find it very strange.

Let me explain using an example. I have a folder named Animations which contain a certain number of subfolders with various names and no image on the root folder, only subfolders. All subfolders contain animated GIF's. In my option I have unchecked Make thumbs for whole folder and I have selected only one thumb for folders. Now when I open the Animations folder in Xnview explorer it crashes. If I access to the content of the subfolders via categories (click on animated GIF and open containing folder, no problem, the thumbs are displayed okay, it's only for folder thumbs). If I disable folders in thumbs sections (Xnview filter options) it doesn't crash. Prior to putting this option back (folders in thumbs), I have converted the first image of each subfolder (keeping the original alongside) to JPEG and renamed it with a first character that would put them top of the list and Xnview doesn't crash anymore and displays the JPG thumbnail for each subfolder. I did not have this problem with previous version. I also encountered it with PSPbrush files but not with PSPimage nor with PSPtub or PSPframe. I have sent you Windows error report (generated in temp file) hope it's of some help. Anyone encountering similar problem would be kind to report here, please.

Best Regards,
Eyael

Sorry, I forgot to mention, the answer is "yes". If I untick Folders in the thumb view, it's okay whether I put a JPG image in it or not but I mentioned that in my email to Pierre.

Already tried, and it doesn't crash if my GIF/PSPbrush folder contain a folder.jpg in it. It does whether the filter is on or not if they only contain GIF/PSPbrush. So I guess my problem is different to yours.
