Summary: Bug reports need to have better titles...

Comments: 
Hello,

I spent half an hour scouring through two hundred plus bug reports
looking to make sure no one else had reported the autoscroll bug on
overflow elements. As 99% of the time I did not find any related bug and
posted a good report. As 99% of the time goes, my good report becomes a
duplicate of someone else's poor reporting!

Something needs to be done about this. It's extremely frustrating
posting bugs here.

John

The titles ("summaries") of bugs are frequently improved after a bug has 
been created, if more is figured out about the bug and a different title 
is needed or if the original one just wasn't very good. But the sheer 
number of bugs means it'll be hard to search them...

By the way, I did an advanced search [1] for "autoscroll overflow" in 
the summary, and five bugs came up, four of them being duplicates (one 
of them yours) and the other being the proper bug. Sounds good to me.

Bugs...bugs and more bugs
Hi all, We are currently running PB 7.2 build 8046. We have been unable to move to higher build versions since everytime we find new issues that cause us to go back to 8046. Two weeks ago, we installed the latest EBF bug fix version for PB 7.3 (build 10180). After preliminary tests, it seemed that everything is working fine.... finaly!! Well, today, we found that in two of our more complex datawindows, we get GPF (general protection fault) upon saving or regeneration. These datawindows contain both blob objects as well as nested reports. However, if you remove either t...
