hot directory list deleted on adding another directory

Post by *ajp » 2008-08-18, 11:48 UTC

my hot directory list has 224 entries;

the last item in wincmd.ini is:
menu224=L2Sim PRJ_STANDARD_1STRAND
cmd224=cd \\l2sim\PRJ_STANDARD_1STRAND
it is the last item of a "submenu" item named "menu213=-remote, other"

the list contains an item named "ANSHAN-APL" at position 120

if I add an additional (arbitrarily choosen) directory using "add current
dir" functionality it as placed at the end of the hot directory list (as
expected);

BUT as soon as I rename the added item to "ANSHAN-AYC"
the COMPLETE list of directories DISAPPEARS!
and, in turn, in wincmd.ini the entry "[DirMenu]" with all its
menu<N> and cmd<N> entries has been removed!

similar:
add a directory named "a-b" to the current directory,
add a directroy named "a-c" to the current directroy,
change into the respective directory and execute "add current dir",
both directories are added to end of the list
as soon as one or both (?) of this entries are move several entries up
the list, again, the directory list will be deleted!

this occurs with versions 7.03a and 7.04a

As your number of entries is quite below of the limit of 998 entries:
How large is your wincmd.ini section "[DirMenu]"?
Maybe the sum of commands and menu descriptions exceeds the 64kLimit?

>>How large is your wincmd.ini section "[DirMenu]"?

the size is 13359 chars (as measured with an editor)

the size of wincdm.ini is about 34500 bytes


what I tried too, is to run total comander with an EMPTY
plugin directory (just to be sure to exclude any influences from
a plugin ... ?)

Please send me the [DirMenu] section of your wincmd.ini by e-mail to support at ghisler dot com with detailed instructions what I need to do to reproduce the error. Thanks!
