I wanted to prevent GnoCHM from saving recent files history. I've tried two things:
- remove gnochm.recent and create directory
- create empty file gnochm.recent
For both cases gnochm failed to start.
GnoCHM version: 0.9.11.
Note about the second method: create empty file and chmod -w gnochm.recent.
This actually crashed for different reason - obviously attempt to parse this file failed and exception was not handled.
