It is a known issue. Please wait until the next build comes out.

Hello Peer,

That is probably the same bug that Marco is reporting here , and in testing it has not shown up because that is all done with one thread. I have no idea, compiler problem, or it may be some deeper bug with the Search Stack that has gone unrecognized thus far, but even Marco does not know at this moment.

Regards, Eelco

are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.
