Yes that was nailed in v1.2. It was being caused by a tiny error in the toolbar code.

<b>For you tech heads</b>

When that little line between buttons (seperator) was being "destroyed" it caused the game to become unstable by trying to free a null pointer. Toolbars are used all over the place and are "destroyed" regularly, here are some examples...

- When leaving the game and returning to the main menu (v1.1.3 and below, not v1.2).
- When exiting the Audio Control Panel.
- When exiting the Game Options.
- After selecting a sprite/tile/power up etc.
- When exiting any of the editors and returning to the main menu.

This one took some time to track down.
