Hey John... can you open a terminal, go to the folder that you got the
TestProject.gambas and type:

file TestProject.gambas

It should give you something like this:

TestProject.gambas: a /usr/bin/env gbr3 script executable (binary data)

If it gives you a different result, there might be something wrong with the
MIME types.

> This is a "just a bug" - on Gambas 3.16.90 May 25, 2021 build on Linux
> Mint 20.1  Not a huge deal but it should probably be fixed at some point.
> I couldn't get on the bug tracker tonight so here it is:
> 1.  Open up Gambas IDE, just sitting at initial home welcome page.
> 2.  Go to Open a File, and pick any binary file out of a project
> folder...for instance "TestProject.gambas".  Or any binary file.
> 3.  A malformed modal warning dialog box displaying a file name path and
> cut-off text announcing "Can not open binary file"  I guess.  I can't see
> all the displayed text.
> 4.  Click OK.
> 5.  Entire Gambas IDE disappears itself, with some system memory lost
> forever.  Oops.
> 6.  Restart Gambas IDE, and the Home Welcome page is showing (not very
> helpfully) the binary file that it can't possibly open on the recent files
> list.  Just begging me to try it again.  Yep, it does the same thing all

> how I think is what is supposed to happen.
