I'm not using a 2 year old version, i'm running the newest version -,-

but i give up. I understand what you're trying to say, but you should know just
as well as i do that there are always exceptions to the rule that an app can't
crash a system. 

Anyway, go ahead, delete me, this bug or anything else. If you're unable to
