Glad to hear you're not modifying the codebase.

If you can produce a recipe for crashes, please post it to Bugzilla. Or,
post it here and let other try and repeat. Make it as simple as
possible. I use HTMLtext images alot with no problems...so I'm wondering
what it is you do which create crashes...and if there's no workaround?

Nope, I don't use those. For my properties plugin, I set my own
frontscripts and let the user toggle them on and off...same with my
Layout plugin. Most of my plugins don't need to interfere with the IDE,
but do call some of the functions of the IDE (altArchive is one of them).

I can certainly see how frustrated you must get trying to do the same
thing for 'hundreds of hours' without success. You're a more patient
person than I! (I usually give up way sooner;-)
best of luck,
