HCL Notes on a Mac.. ONE letter makes it crash ..everytime

I have struggled for hours and hours with HCL Notes on several Macbooks.

It has been from V9 to now V12 .. it would install ...but crash as soon as password was entered.

After long conversations with HCL Support the reason for the crash seem to have been found.

A bug in the Mac version of Notes.... one letter makes Notes crash...ONE letter!.

If you run lots of agents and having used libraries in the client there will be memory leaks.....we all know that.

So the customer uses a policy to set a higher max heap space size in notes.ini.


And that helps a lot.....however...

there is a bug on the Mac version of Notes:

Setting this parameter crashes Notes immediately after entering a password.

Instead the Mac version needs to have the parameter as:


So many hours wasted ...for just one letter

Hopefully this bug will be fixed i V12.0.1
