Strange things can happen on reload with 1.18.14 (none of which happened with 1.18.13)

1. Message window gets drawn detached from the main window. Only happens when not extended (i.e. should not be draw at all). very repeatable. Picture attached.

2. Screen goes totally black and Mac is unresponsive. Can only recover by reboot. This happens frequently but not always (maybe 1 in 5 times). Has also happened once on launch.

3. Main window architecture goes not get re-drawn (or redraw is significantly delayed). No red, yellow, green buttons or window title text. Happened only once to me.

Mac 10.4.8, G4 dual PPC

    Just a gentle reminder - reload still causes a major crash with v1.19.0 (MacOSX 10.4.8 PPC). It takes down the whole MacOS, not just FreeWRL (this is still the only application that's ever done this to me). Picture attached. I don't want this to sound too negative, as I see good progress with v1.19.0, but this bug is very bad news.

    No noticable improvement with aqua v1.19.2

    Still a problem in Aqua 1.19.8

    With the message window (drawer) closed, doing a reload causes the message
    window to appear.

    The window is detached (not connected to the main window). It seems to
    appear at the location where the foot of the original window's position was
    when it was first opened, and hovering above the main window.

    Any attempt to move the detached window and it disappears.

    However, no noticeable ill effects from this, it's just bizarre, non-standard,
    behaviour. No crash now occurs, so thing are much improved - thanks.

    Max OS X 10.4.10 Power PC
