[Gambas-user] Settings problem (crash)

PS. I was able to tell that right away as when i compiled it I got a
warning message...

FMain, 9, "Class name hidden by global declaration: Settings"
(it made no sense for FMain.class, line 9 where the debugger said it was
because the warning was in fact coming from FMain.form not FMain.class)

but it told me there was something declared as "Settings" somewhere that
probably should not be.

I could not find a definition in the code but then i found it in the Menu
editor. I renamed the spacer from Settings to mnuSpacer and then everything
worked okay.

Well wishes
