Hi folks,

 in sticks bgonline forum there was the question whether it is
 possible to change the path of the database. I just tried it, but gnubg
 crashes on a winxp system when I set a new path in "option" -

I'm not quite sure I follow. In options -> database it is possible to
set a name of the database, which is translated in to a file name and
path to be used by sqlite. It wouldn't be too hard to make that a file
selection button instead, but I don't quite understand why you would
want to select a file with a path.

I think it's because someone didn't want the file on the c: drive. The answer is not to store the "My documents" area on the c drive, as this is where the database is created.

Making this a file selection is not a good idea, as the other database types expect a database name, not a filename. I think a special case is just likely to cause problems.
