Re: AOS 4.1 FE bug - the shell crashes when iconified

The Shell icon is supplied in SYS:System, so I don't understand why it wasn't there in your installation (or, alternatively, why you would have deleted it). It contains all the custom settings for opening the window. That's simply because I had deleted it (together with the associated CLI command -...

Re: AOS 4.1 FE bug - the shell crashes when iconified

There are several suitable "def_xxx" icons in ENVARC:Sys/, not including "def_shell" which the console was also looking for. There are "def_iconify" and "def_kingcon" (shudder). I can test to see if one of these is present, I did have def_iconify.info, and the shell still crashed (reported since th...

Re: AOS 4.1 FE bug - the shell crashes when iconified

I think I have seen some programs default to a (very ugly) old, 1.3 style icon for iconification sometimes. Is there maybe such a thing defined internally somewhere (icon.library? workbench.library? or wherever) which could be used as a last resort? Definitely. Make (some of) the ENVARC:Sys/def_#?....

Re: AOS 4.1 FE bug - the shell crashes when iconified

Looking at the console code (pretty old now), I can see that your insight is exactly right. It tries to GetDiskObject("ENVARC:Sys/def_Shell") first, then, if that doesn't work, it tries to GetDiskObject ("SYS:System/Shell"). Ah, good to know! I'll move the icon from SYS:System/ to ENVARC:Sys/, so t...

Re: AOS 4.1 FE bug - the shell crashes when iconified

You're welcome. My wild and OS-ignorant guess goes like this... Since Snoopy reports no attempt at opening the icon when iconification is requested, it looks like the icon is pre-loaded at initialization; such pre-loading is (rightfully) fault-tolerant, but then, when the moment of iconifying comes,...

Re: AOS 4.1 FE bug - the shell crashes when iconified

Another test: with KingCON iconifying works fine.

Re: AOS 4.1 FE bug - the shell crashes when iconified

Afraid not. The call to ProcessScan was successful (result = 0x00000001), and the iconification process is all Intuition and Workbench library calls, not DOS, so you won't see anything relevant in the DOS log. And doesn't it suggest anything the fact that the crash does not happen when I close the ...

Re: AOS 4.1 FE defect - shell completion list too short

Certainly I can reproduce your popup list problem when I "Try" that theme. The spacing of the list is quite different from that of the console itself. I'll investigate it as soon as I can. At least I can make it happen, thanks for your help. You're welcome! I've raised BZ #9104 for this problem. Ni...

Re: AOS 4.1 FE defect - shell completion list too short

I couldn't find a way attach a file to a PM, so I thought I could just make the theme public and let more people fiddle with it... here it is.
