    I did quite a bit of testing with the new dive site management system.

    1) Define an existing dive site: Create a new dive, then type the
    first letter of a dive site in the dive site name field in the Notes
    panel (i.e. without opening Manage). A list of possible sites
    starting with that letter appears. I select a dive site and save the
    dive. Kein Problem ├╝berhaupt. Now, trying to define a new site:

    2) I create a new dive. The original blue message that said
    something like "Move to the divespot and double-click the site" is
    not there any more. If I double-click the dive spot on marble, then
    I get a segmentation fault.

    3) I create  a dive, then go to Manage, type the first letter of a
    dive site. Segmentation fault. On one or two occasions, no crash,
    but in > 90% of attempts a crash. It it does not crash:

    4) Create a dive, open Manage, fill in dive site name. Blue bar
    appears on marble. double-click marble. Seg fault.

    5) I create a dive, open Manage, put cursor on coordinates field.
    Now the blue message appears on marble. I double-click marble.
    Segmentation fault.

    Looks like probably still not possible to add a new dive.

    I agree that if manage cannot be used to define the current dive
    site, then it should move outside of the Notes panel dealing with
    the present dive. But, big problem: to be honest, there is not a
    logical alternative place for this button within the Notes panel. So
    let's keep it where it is.

    Oh yes, SHA gc6783739

    Kind regards,

    Thanks, Benjamin.
