Your message did get through, to me at least, via Charles and Neil.
I added the libtiff argument to the build instructions, thanks.
The crash you describe is seen by other people too. It's caused by
wxView::GetFrame() returning a NULL pointer. XaraLX assumes that
wxView::GetFrame will return a good pointer to a frame window, because
it told wxWidgets to create an MFC-style window framework. It looks to
me like wxWidgets is behaving differently on the Mac than it does when
configured for GTK so I suspect a wxWidgets problem but I haven't
looked into it properly yet.
Did I say "MFC-style"? I meant "MDI-style"
In the long run we probably don't really want XaraLX to have MDI-style
windows on the Mac because that's not the Mac way of doing things. So
the question is, should we persist with trying to get the MDI-style
working for now, so that we can make other parts of the program more
stable or should we change to a different window layout now, which will
undoubtedly introduce a new layer of Mac-only bugs.
