After the crash there was some "#history.#save#"
file there, but no original one anymore. So the
crash probably happened when the new file should

#history#save# file and I had to take a backup.

limit for clipboard snippets to be stored in the

Is this still an issue? Has a recent maximum limit been implemented?
