sigh

This problem is raised over and over again and everytime I'm telling the people that this is NO problem of my GUI but something deep inside E-UAE which exists since ages.

Although I am NOT responsible for whatever is buggy in E-UAE itself but only for the EasyUAE GUI, I will now have a look and try to fix it as it annoys the hell out of me that I always get the bugreports for it.

Stay tuned.

As far as i test, not the no-sdl, not sdl versions of EUAE have that problems. I can run/exit it many times, the problemm (for me) start to happenes only with inbuild gui. So , because of it i think that problem can be related to GUI too (because for second time it's lockup machine exactly on moment when GUI must spawns).

I hope this issue can be solved since it makes it close to useless if you must reboot every time you quit it. I've been using uae-sdl a lot (and earlier versions) and there are no issues quitting and starting it over and over again.

@hotrod

All I can say is that I can happily start and quit EasyUAE a zillion times without any issues *as long as* I do *not* start the actual emulation. As soon as the emulation ran once, something is screwed .. this clearly points to something inside E-UAE and not the GUI. Maybe this bug was only introduced after the last releases done by Rich and only surfaced now with my version because I used the latest CVS snapshot.. dunno. I'll see what I can do.

@Cyborg

Maybe better use latest public SDL version ? (it's more stable in many terms, and "correct aspect ratio" also works fine in SDL version).

ps. Cyborg, what you think about making a bounty for you for upgrating/fixing current e-uae ?:)

@all

Right, I wasted the whole for this but finally found the culprit and guess what? It wasn't my GUI but inside E-UAE itself just like I said before!!

SCNR :p

For those interested, it was the AHI cleanup function, which didn't correctly NULL-out all pointers but could get called multiple times, so it freed the non-NULL'ed pointers twice.. this was a real bastard bug from hell as it crashed everywhere else just not where really the problem was.

I hope you all are now a bit more happy ;) Will upload a new version shortly.

@Cyborg
Good to hear that you found a bug, and good that you was right that is not GUI problem :)

ps. Tested new version, works fine ! I just try to run/exit 6-7 times for now, and no problems. Thanks a lot.
