Since upgrading to 4.2.0, when I have OCPN running, then open an app, like the calculator on top of it, when I click the OCPN desktop again OPCN crashes. It also loses everything that has transpired during the session. Hours of tracks, gone. I can duplicate it consistently. It seems that OCPN has to be opened first, then another app, then back to OCPN..crash. If I open the other app first then OCPN then back to calculator app then click off the side onto the OCPN desktop no crash.
Hope not to confusing. Been working with it for a few months that way, but just lost the entire trip from Raeitea to Bora Bora and the circumnavigation inside of Bora following a local boat to get to the SE corner inside.

Anyway, longtime user. Love the product. In the attachments you can see the desktop with the calc app on top, click on the underlying OCPN desktop with app... crash
