Unexpected behaviour when open a second Skrooge instance

Hello,

Sometimes I forget I have Skrooge already open and I do it again, and the behaviour when I do that is strange and, in my opinion, wrong because can lead you to think that the data file is somehow corrupted.

When you open a second instance of Skrooge, the new one appears like this:

No toolbar, no pages and no account file apparently.

And in the background, the first instance of Skrooge changes immediately to this:

Hence you can think that something is happening with your file (and panic!! ;D )

Actually, if you close the two instances (actually three instances since a third one is automatically when you close the first one), and open again Skrooge, your file will be there, berfectly ok.

So it is maybe just a cosmetic issue, but it caused me a shock first time a saw it. Could be possible to Skrooge to check if other instance is already running (for same user I assume) and display a warning message?

Thanks!!

What a coincidence, I just solved this problem.

When you say "just" you really mean it, don't you? Because I got the last available sources from git and compiled it just 30 minutes ago and the problem was still there. I will compile it again then.

Thanks!!!

Hi!

I tested the fix now (sorry, didn't have time before) and it's true that it doesn't open a new instance now, but still the message "Your document has been restored ..." is shown. Is that on purpose?

Thanks

My fist commit was for the panel and sometimes a crash after that, not for the warning.
I did a second commit to avoid the warning.
