it worked for me a couple of days ago on Ubuntu, as my dive log file
has some custom dive locations (e.g. named "dsadasdsads") which now
suddenly cannot be edited.
i'm seeing a strange QML bug related to "mouse areas".

probably best to discuss these details with other users in a new thread.
once we have some solid proposals i can look at those and estimate
their complexity.
then we can pick the best proposal and create a Github issue for it
and start the work...
