Hi, Bruce

For the first question, after I answered 'yes'. Artemis will run well
without problems. But after running fits for four (sometimes even three)
times, it will crash again. And the next cycle begins. 

As for reproducible, only after I finished the updates, it will crash every
four or three fits, no matter what fits I am running. The fits paths
included might be around 100. 

By the way, I did not notice if Artemis posts a message or not before. But
this time, it do pop up a message at the first time I run the fit (not at
the time it crashes). This is the message I got: # This file created at
11:01:54 on 27 April, 2004
# using Windows XP, perl 5.006001, Tk 800.024, and Ifeffit 1.2.5
The following message was trapped by Artemis on a SIGWARN:

ArtemiswarnC:\Program Files\Ifeffit\horae\stash\ARTEMIS.TRAPCODE(0x3525f58)
at artemis line 1491
	main::__ANON__('Tk::Error: Can\'t locate utf8.pm in @INC (@INC

blib\lib\auto\Tk\Error.al) line 402
	Tk::Error('MainWindow=HASH(0x394d430)', 'Can\'t locate utf8.pm in

	eval {...} called at /PerlApp/Tk.pm line 340
	Tk::MainLoop() called at artemis line 1627

Here attached is the file. 

Thanks a lot,

You seem to be reporting two different problems here, but have not
given me enough information to do anything useful about either one.

1.  What happens when you answer yes to the question about cleaning up
    abandoned project folders?  Does Artemis crash again right after
    that?  How about the next time you start Artemis?

2.  It is really not adequate just to say "Artemis crashed very
    often."  If you do not give me enough information to reproduce the
    problem myself, then I cannot fix whatever is causing the crash.
    Indeed, I cannot even begin to search for the problem because you
    haven't told me anything about it.

    Please read this page carefully:
    and the consider trying your bug report again.

    If Artemis beeps and posts a message to the echo area about a TRAP
    file, please send me the specified file along with a description
    of how you got to the situation.
