Hi,

Can someone confirm this:

1) Take a snapshot of the screen (800 x 600 or more)

2) Copy the picture on the clipboard (using Select All)
     With SimpleText.

3) Open the Remote Access control panel...

Remote Access should crash at this point.

If you copy a small chunk of text on the clipboard, or a small
picture, everything will work fine again.

I don't understand coz i have 160MB of RAM !  (OS 8.6, G3)
AFAIK, i can't give more memory to a control panel.

* This is 50% off-topic. If your app copies large pictures on the clipboard
and you try to open a connection, maybe it will fail if you don't
purge the clipboard before ?

Thanks,

Sylvain
