[Linrad] Re: [wsjtgroup] MAP65 crashes under Win XP

Here's some more information about the crash of MAP65 under Win XP

The Linrad waterfall display looks relatively normal given the massive 
birdies and switchmode crap I live with.

Here's the output from MAP65 running from a terminal...nothing 
remarkable, just silently crashes. 
As you can see, it's a late revision.

C:\Program Files\WSJT6>map65
MAP65 Version 0.9 r1026, by K1JT

Time line
17:53 program started and clock running
18:55 first minute of waterfall appears
19:02 clock stops ticking over, stuck on 19:02
?????  After a minute or so, the windows "has to close" popup appears
Clock resumes ticking!
Message and Bandmap windows open and close
Able to click on Waterfall and green cursor at top moves
0% packet error rate and Rx level responds to preamp on/off

It appears a sub-thread has crashed and then locked the main program for 
a time.

The process tree shows MAP65.exe, a subprocess also called MAP65.exe and 
a subprocess to the
second that's the error popup box.

The "details in the popup mentions "audio.pyd"

This is "MAP65", not MAP65-IQ.  I'm using Linrad with a Delta-44 but 
only feed Softrock I/Q
output to one channel, the 2nd channel just has noise.  Dual polarity 
comes after this gets

thanks in advance,
