#49 mged crash

crash or data loss

I am using version 7.4.2 on a LINUX box and have come
across the same problem during two different sessions.
While using the "in" command to add a new object to
the database in mged, the program has frozen. The
first time I was able to access a different window and
kill mged. However, the second time it completely
locked up the computer and I had to reboot. I have
downloaded the newest version, 7.6.0, but am not sure
if the bug has been found and fixed.

    Can you provide exact steps as to what steps you're performing that causes
    the problem? It sounds like you're hitting an infinite loop or running out of
    memory (causing massive swapping) but it's hard to say without more
    information. Also hard to do anything about the problem without a specific
    example. Perhaps you can provide a .g and a sample in command that
    causes the problem?

    It's come to attention from other reports that a common cause of this problem
    can be multiple references to the same objects in a combination/region. Those
    are generally considered modeling errors for now (and usually are in practice),
    though MGED should certainly not crash regardless.

    Closing out due to lack of feedback. Several issues related to multiple object references have since been fixed.
