[linux|windows] Floating point exception

[linux|windows] Floating point exception

With the current linux client (2.4.1) I get a "Floating point exception" when starting the client. The only thing that helps is throwing all the local data away and starting from scratch.
This happened even when using the backup database and then resetting the token. In this case the program crashed immediately after the token reset and could not be started again.
This is happening every other program start (occured three times to me until now - had the computer running the whole week), but I haven't really tried to reproduce this more often...

RE: [linux] Floating point exception
I've now reproduced this problem a few times, even with windows.

There are two distinct moments this CAN happen:
* Reboots / Shutting down the system. It seems that if the whatpulse program is closed by the operating system when the machine shuts down (or reboots), it might be caught in the wrong moment and writes a corrupt database to disk.
** Shutting down Whatpulse manually when shutting down the computer seems to help with this case in most cases
* Auto-Pulsing - I've seen this happen at least five times now, twice on windows, three times on linux. It crashes immediately after an automatic pulse and then never recovers.

RE: [linux|windows] Floating point exception
Since this problem still exists for me and happens quite often, I've found out, it happens randomly on pulsing. It doesn't matter if it's manual or automatic. The client immediately crashes and won't recover until you delete the database files and start with a new configuration.

I've disabled all "per application statistics" and "per country statistics"

Windows Version is Win7 64bit in two cases.
Linux is xubuntu 14.10 in 3 cases and Debian 7 with XFCE in one case.

Am I the only one?

Pretty much, you're the only one who has reported this.. Try removing the file: /home/****/.local/share/data/WhatPulse/GeoIP.dat and downloading a manual copy from here: http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoi...oIP.dat.gz

That's the only thing that I can think of that could cause this. Otherwise something is blocking the client from writing a proper data file or receiving proper data from the website.
