juhu I think i found the problem!

Some of the tutorial patches has \\; or even \\\; int he source.
It is posibble to load the patches, but eventually a crash wil occur.
Maybe you have to load a couple of p's..do some editing, as usual.

Ok I'm of the debug for now, need to shake my body.

Hope it helps

This python script can/might be helpfull for search and replace.
