Personally, I don't know how anyone used IBO before 4.2Hf, since
this release contained the fix that Jason and I worked-on which
stopped a double post occurring on a master-detail insert. This error
caused both Insert and Update triggers to fire on a single Master
insert, and (potentially) caused any changes generated in the Insert
trigger to be nullified.
From other user's posts, it looks like the Win98 resource problem
crept-in after sub-release 4.2Ha so I am basically stuck... I need
the Hf changes but I have to deal with the Ha resource bug.

The 'laziness' I mentioned is that it's nice for a component-
library writer to work on new features, enhancements, etc., but if
the base contains serious bugs then it is absolutely critical that
the bugs take precedence over any new development. This is all part
of the discipline that a 'professional' programmer must have. A
number of users have posted informative messages on the problem and
even created demo programs to highlight the problems so, therefore,
much work has been done to aid in the elimination of the bug. I am
trying to identify the source of the bug, but I have very little
knowledge of most of the IBO source code.

How can this version be frozen with this serious Win98 problem
contained within it?
