Focuswriter - a word of warning!

There is a serious bug in the Linux version of Focuswriter - at least on my system - that I will be reporting to the developer.

If you type anything more than a couple of lines and scroll up and down quickly with the mouse or scroll wheel Focuswriter will crash taking everything since the last save with it.

I just lost a good page of text I was writing to try and organize my thoughts and now have to go re-write it.

With this bug in play if you use Focuswriter set the auto-save to a short amount of time so as to preserve as much as possible if the app crashes.

*ptooey!* *grump*
