  1. I was using Workbench 5.2.35 on a Debian 64 Wheezy. It crashed every 2 minutes. But since I’ve updated to GA 5.2.38, it only crashes every 5 minutes. Seriously, I believe I’ve never managed to work 15 minutes in WB without a crash. So I’ve been cursing WB for 2 years now. Some crashes are reproducible, others seem random.
    I don’t know about other environments, but I suggest the linux 64 bits version should be tagged “alpha release”.

    1. Rogojine: If you get reproducible crashes, you should file bug reports with instructions on how to repeat.
      Also, Debian is not supported, if you use our packages there may be some incompatible difference in libraries.
