The copyright status of the Pentagonal Dreams is IMHO a bit unclear (in
particular because of the samples in the mod file - I don't think it is
clearly documented if these all come from free sources), which is why it
is not included.
But of course it shouldn't crash. Have you looked at the code? That may
be fairly easy to fix. It crashes if you click forward beyond the end of
the list. You can right click to go backwards if you are at the last
one. A patch would be appreciated.

Same here, sorry. As an easy workaround, edit the settings file

It would make more sense if you would just compile it yourself.
Then you will get A) all the latest fixes and level additions, B) the
music we removed from the package, and C) it will be easy to fix problems.
