Please (before 0.9.11-pre2), could someone slip in some code to the

I'm getting a repeated printout saying: "Floating point interrupt (SIGFPE)",
and FlightGear freezes.
I've installed Simgear-plib (CVS as of yesterday), and FlightGear-Plib source,
CVS as of yesterday. System is Linux, Suse 10.2, gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 20061115
Hi Durk ,
make sure the cloud cache and resolution aren't zero before enabling them....
if (cloud_cache == 0 || resolution == 0)
This is basic, basic GUI design stuff.
We don't want FlightGear to appear on the "interface hall of shame"
page now, do we?
GUI design rule 1: "If it doesn't work or is temporarily unavailable,
grey it out".
If rule 1 turns out to be confusing (not obvious to the user how to
enable the greyed-out item, try the following:
GUI design rule 1A: "If it doesn't work and you can't or won't grey out
the button, have the button pop up an explanation-dialog".
I recall a similar situation months ago with the "autopilot" menu for
the c172 that used to pop up a dialog but didn't do anything because
that 'plane has its own autopilot controlled via the 3D cockpit. The
latest c172 (and quite a few other 'planes) grey out the 'autopilot'
menu with a bit of Nasal as I recall. Much better.
