The crash occurs prior to reaching a dialog to specify the external database or
database type. It occurs while trying to create the .rkl file.
OK, I see. I cannot reproduce this crash on my laptop (FC5), let me try to find
an FC4 machine to test with.
I can't reproduce this in 2.4.0. Please try to update to the 2.4.0 packages
(making sure the 2.2.* packages are missing) and test this.
Updating to version 2.4.0 has fixed the problem.
