I have a gap4 database with two contigs, each of them containing single trace. The traces are from the same template, one is forward, the other reverse read. While having one contig open in editor window I tried to open the other one in editor, upon which the gap4 terminated with the error message below.

Looks like this has been covered:
Is it possible to obtain a copy of this database? Say to jkb 'at' sanger.ac.uk?
If it's a 100% reproducable bug then it's just the sort that can be fixed easily (generally) too.
I know it's been ages since I've done gap4 updates - sorry for that but other work has taken precedence recently. However I'm still interested in fixing bugs obviously where they occur so that the next release will have them fixed.
I cannot submit the database on which I originally reported this, but recently I've got similar/same error message while trying to join two contigs. I can send you this one. It seems to be quite reproducible, though I didn't go over it enough times to claim it's 100%.
I assume you will need also the traces? I'm asking, since it seems that when I've sent you data set last time it was too big to get through... (wish.exe on windows problem). Unless I hear from you, I'll send the whole thing, probably chopped into several emails.
Speaking about wish.exe - I switched to Staden/Linux, and most of my databases ceased to have any problems, except few, which seemed to have a problem similar to the windows's "wish.exe" one. After automation of pregap4/gap4 assemblies I haven't noticed any further problems of this type. So maybe it was combination of me and certain type of data...
