I've had to stop Swipe from running, as I've been getting a whole 
series of crashes which lock up this ARMX6. Unfortunately, when this 
happens I can't record what happened in WimpLog, as the only way out 
of the crash is Control-Break.

The main problem has been Printers refusing to print from OPro and 
from DrawPrint, but on occasions I get an error message from HID.

Pity, as it was a nice idea, but not now for me.
