I only use one profile, so there should be no need to enter the profile manager. However, quite often, and always after crashes, I am told my default directory is not available, please select a new profile. I have tracked down the problem to a scrambling of part of the appreg file. At the end of the 30K appreg file is a copy of the path to my default (only) profile. When the problem occurs this path is shifted 3 bytes further into the file, with 3 characters preceeding the leading "/" of the path. Each of these characters is > 127 (non-ascii). The path normally ends in ".slt". When corrupted, the last character of the file is the "l". I can repair the file with a binary editor and all seems fine again until another crash or ???
