Thank you for your attention to this as well.
So, I turned off wi-fi as suggested and this made no difference. I got another crash report and I added “attn: Nick Parker” to the description before sending.
Then, I rebooted (should have done this before reporting a problem, my bad) and I flushed the recent applications queue (by pressing the square soft-button and swiping all of the applications away) and I tried again. Viola! All is well with the world again.
So my immediate problem is fixed, but I hope you continue to investigate this odd behavior with the crash report I mentioned earlier.
I have been a delighted STRIP user since about 2003 (PalmOS version, let us observe a moment of silence for PalmOS, a fine system that vanished far too soon.) I certainly appreciate the prompt attention I have gotten from this incident and the high quality of this Zetetic application.
