To make it work?  The issue is listed under bug #434, and is WAY beyond
me.  I would LOVE to be able to make it work (1/2 my desktop apps are
VFP), but the issue is WAY beyond my understanding.  I spent 3 days
finding the regression, and at least 2 weeks trying to figure out what
the issue is.   I even went to a crash C++ class in leiu of Java in
hopes of gaining some insight into how this all worked.. 

Nope, haven't been able to move on that issue at all :(

So far, I think it's only limited to VFP, and with there being VERY
limited feedback regarding VFP apps, I think this issue will die with
VFP.  It's possible it doesn't even exist in VFP 7 (.Net IIRC) apps, but
I can't test that.

On my end, my commercial VFP desktop applications now have Linux
alternatives (ACCPAC Pro and Advantage Series), that I have to take a
look at anyways.  We're outgrowing VFP table sizes.  My custom apps are
cheezy, and just need to be recreated in something more robust.  I think
that's what's happening to VFP as a whole.
