log edit

Drew Arnett
The recent discussion reminded me of an issue I hadn't reported, yet.

Not sure when, but recent versions of tlf using plain vanilla Debian
stable fail to return to tlf after a ':edit'.  It does take me out to
the editor, but when I exit the editor, it give me the following error
message as it crashes out:

     tlf: background_process.c:88: start_background_process: Assertion
`stop_backgrnd_process == 1' failed.

It was not and is not a high priority for me, as I just start up tlf
again.  It's fairly infrequent I need to go back to the log and
correct something after I've logged it.  If I had to do it every 10
QSOs, then, yes, it would be more of a hassle.

I haven't submitted a ticket to the issue tracker; I can if you would
like.  I also haven't dug in to try to debug, either, because, again,
it hasn't been a big problem.

I didn't work a huge number of QSOs, but tlf did great for me, as
always, with the recent ARRL SS CW contest.

Best regards,

Hi Drew,

thanks for the bug report.

I can confirm the problem. I got already fixed in last autumn, but as
it seems there was no official bug fix release afterwards.

So either pick up the actual sources from github and compile it
yourself or wait for the shortly coming TLF-1.4.0 version.
