i was hoping to download brand new software (iCal) with my brand new software
(Chimera 0.5.0), but my attempt failed in crash.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch Chimera Navigator.
2. visit
3. fill out the form.
4. click Download iCal
Actual Results:  
at this point, Chimera crashes. 

Expected Results:  
launched the downloader and saved the file.

i'm not sure if this is actually a problem with the downloader or with something
arcane in the way Apple has constructed the downloading page/form.

I can't reproduce this. 

After I click download I am prompting to save the file, then after choosing a
location the download proceeds normally. I'm currently running on an iBook
700MHz, 128 MB, running 10.2.

more system specs:

i'm running Jaguar on a PowerBook G3 Firewire.

i tried this several times and got a crash. i had been using Chimera comfortably
for most of the day and had visited a variety of sites. maybe i can try to get a
a stack trace is worth a thousand words, given that i did this yesterday myself
and it worked (0.5 build, 10.2), albeit it was my desktop, not my pismo powerbook.

ok, can you give me a quick starter guide to doing a stack trace on Desktop
apps? i've done them before on *NIX command-line apps. do i just run Chimera
from Terminal or something?

I wasn't able to reproduce either using the 2002-09-11-05 build under 10.2
(6c115). Tested on Power Mac G4 Dual 800.

so is it possible that it's an architecture issue? has anyone else tried it on a
PowerBook G3, yet?

This happens when IC has no setting for your default download folder (which can
happen for new 10.2 accounts). It was fixed yesterday.
