Re: Public screen closing bug in OS4.1

Subject: Re: Public screen closing bug in OS4.1

Since people are blaming Ringhio, and/or the programs, I will explain more why I think this is an *OS4* bug:

If I get MUI to open a screen for SimpleMail, then tell CygnusEd to open it's window on that public screen, then close SimpleMail, then close CygnusEd... then the public screen will remain open forever (and in fact if I run SimpleMail again then it will be unable to use that public screen, and will use Workbench instead, since I suspect MUI tries to create a new public screen of the same name and fails because one already exists).

As thomas said, theres simply no need for a CloseScreen() patch. Just follow the development guidelines

That is all very well... unless OS4 itself is buggy. My BetterCloseScreen patch solves the problem for MUI apps, but not for OWB since it (unsurprisingly) never seems to call CloseScreen in the first place.

I do NOT wish to debate the pros & cons of my CloseScreen patch in this thread, and kindly ask you to refrain from doing so. This thread is about an OS4 bug.
You can create a new thread if you wish to discuss my patch... however I would prefer if you would wait for the "r2" release to be verified for public download, since this fixes a major bug.
