Hello all,

I have GUI modules that start with:

root = Tk()
diaryentry = DknDiary(root)

This is closed down by:

def quit(self):
    if askyesno(_("Verify exit"), _("Are you sure?")):

Works fine on W2K and Linux. But XP generates an ERROR that:
(translated from Dutch, so it may not be completely accurate ;-))

The instruction on 0x00d6a0a3 refers to memory at 0x00000008.
The read action to memory failed. Click etc....

Could anyone help me out here?

Best Regards,

Please, remove NOSPAM. when answering to me directly!
