Launching engines such as Critter or PA_GTB Stockfish completely clears the learning files (SF and PH files respectively) which is probably caused by triggering the UCI buttons meant to do just that.
Anyway the files get rewritten from scratch which is a serious data loss!

    I've just remembered seeing a houdini hash dump that shouldn't have been there so the problem pertains to all buttons most probably.

    You're right, Scidb is triggering the UCI buttons at startup of the engine during the setup of the UCI options, this is a bug. Unfortunately I didn't know yet the existence of such dangerous buttons, I'm not using any books or learning files. I'm sorry about the loss of the data. Please consider that Scidb is still in beta phase because it requires testing. This bug will be fixed in next version, the buttons will be excluded from setup (also fixed in Winboard protocol).
