Also, when I try to nuke this note, the program exits and when started again that note is still in the list.
Started the program from command line, it says ERROR: The note with the guid [insert long alphanumeric string] could not be deleted.
So I created a new note and deleted the offending one. Allright? Nope. When program is restarted, the zombie note from hell shows again.

Go to xterm, cd .conboy, ls -a, here's the stupid note. Kill it. Start over.
Hmm, that doesn't sound so good, but there have been a lot of internal changes, so... Well, I'll do some more testing myself the next days. If you find out more, please let me know.

Just FYI.
Something strange happened to Conboy (0.5.0) on my N810 OS .43-7.

I had 2 (of 7 in all) Conboy notes (A and B, about 1 page each) minimized on the left display side.
I did a lot of surfing with Tear.
I closed Tear.
I opened note A: it was blank, not even the name showed.
Note B was OK, the note list was unchanged and showed A.
I closed the blank "A" and reopened it: no change.
I closed all notes and restarted Conboy.
>> Everything OK !
??

I guess this is hard to reproduce, I don't think I'll try.
As I said, just FYI.

Conny, hello again !

Nearly strange again today in the same situation.
Except :
The note, in this case "B", was blank just a couple of seconds and then appeared complete.

I guess I will do some experimenting with how many notes I have open+minimized in different situations.

Unless :
Since some time Tear (and perhaps some other apps) sometimes under some command,e.g. selection of text, pauses a while with Load Applet showing a full bar for processor activity.
I guess there might be something underneath also influencing Conboy.
In case of a next time I will try to remember checking load applet.

Conboy is still a big favourite.
It loads much faster than e.g. mNotes and QuickNote.
And only Conboy has more space on screen + text size / highlighting.

Cheers, Keep going !

Thanks for reporting this! The problem could also be related to a low memory situation. Maemo has the possibility to kill a background application if there is not enough memory for the foreground application. So all applications should listen to this "kill" event and shutdown gracefully. As I have not yet implemented that, it might be related. Itīs only a guess though. Iīll check how much work it is to implement this feature - maybe it will help.

Thank you! Iīm happy that someone is using it I know itīs still far from perfect and development slowed down a bit, but things are still moving

Additional info, in case it makes a difference :

Booting from int. card.
256 Mb swap partition on ext. card, was enabled (at least on "second occurence") and according to "Advanced Power" only partly used.
( Could swapping be one reason? )

On my tablet I notice a slight delay between the appearance of an app's titled window and it's contents, even when they are small.
Don't know if it was always so.
( QUOTE myself: "Since some time Tear (and perhaps some other apps) sometimes under some command,e.g. selection of text, pauses a while with Load Applet showing a full bar for processor activity." )

In case my tablet has acquired some delaying feature underneath, that might exaggerate normal delays.

My Conboy's Trashcan has started to behave strangely.
Trash-canned notes reappear after restarting Conboy.

All this happened after installing wxMaxima, which included ~4 libraries.
Uninstalled Conboy 0.5.0 and reinstalled it, no change :

Details :
1)
Open note "A"
Click on it's Trashcan icon and on "yes" , Note closes
Open Notelist, Note "A" is gone
Close all notes and restart Conboy
Open Notelist, Note "A" is there again ; open "A", It is complete

2)
Open note "B"
Erase some text and close the note
Do 1) with "B": >The modified "B" is back

3)
Open note "C"
Erase some text and do not close the note
Do 1) with "C": >The unmodified "C" is back

( Not shure if the difference between 2) and 3) is new.)
Uninstalled and reinstalled Conboy.
All notes are there incl. the trash-canned ones, behaviour unchanged.


The only (?) difference in my N810 (OS .43-7) since normal Conboy behaviour,
is that I have installed wxMaxima, a large math. app., from
Anunakin's repo http://maemo.vivaphp.net, distr. /pool/.
About 4 libraries were included.
( a lisp lib, wxwidgets, + ?? )

Perhaps a library Conboy uses was overwritten (by an older version) ?
I'd like to list the new libs, but I don't know how to find out which they are.
( If needed, I could clone Diablo to some partition and install only Conboy +suspects.)

I looks like I introduced some new bugs with version 0.5. I did many internal changes which are needed for future versions. This bug also occurs on my tablet, so it's not related to any extra software you have installed.

I filed a bug report here: https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4777

Hopefully I'll find some time on the weekend to fix this. Thanks for reporting and testing!

Aahh , I'm relieved . . .
Funny, that I didn't notice earlier.

Thanks, and no hurry !

I just released 0.5.1. There is only one small bug fix in this version, which is that the deletion of notes is again possible.

Cheers!
Conny

Hey guys!

I'll be away (and offline) till August. I'm just saying, not that you think the project is dead
