What kind of dialogue are we talking about here? A Wimp error box or
If I start NetSurf from other applications, or my own Basic
functions that look at Alias$URLOpen_... and do a Wimp_StartTask,
it works OK. So it seems that whatever Messenger is doing to
fire up NetSurf causes this problem. I thought I would ask if
any other NetSurf users have seen the problem (then I'll
probably report it to RComp).
It may be useful to run Wimpmon and have it log the relevant Wimp message
blocks to disc in raw format.
