Hi, Andreas!

Shortly after I posted this, I saw Kim's posting of the availability (and link to) v2.4.166, so I downloaded it, installed it, and tried my test again and still got the same behavior. Per Kim's request (he requested bug reports be reported as responses to his message), so I updated this report there with the version tested being v2.4.166.

I am running ZTW64.EXE modified 01-May-2016 18:53:36 (my time, as extracted from the v2.4.166 zip file), 1,108,456 bytes having an MD5 hash of "6ad14c72d403fe7646bbb06e8d7ce75f".

I posted a screenshot there testing with 3 files showing the results after pressing the [DELETE] key.

However!!!! Now I cannot replicate the problem, and in fact since I last tested it, I have changed a number of settings.

What's more, I just put back the old ZTW64.EXE and now it is not happening with THAT version either. Conclusion so far: the problem isn't being triggered with my current settings / setup / environment..... not sure what it is yet, but I'll work to try to restore the environment I had yesterday when I reported this (and after I installed v2.4.166) to see if I can replicate the problem and then will report back here.

I will place this information with my posting as a response to Kim's post as well.

Will report back here soon. :-)

Kind regards,
