Hi All. It seems that having a version of LyX working poperly on OS

Do you confirm that the only feature not working properly is
That has been my observation.
So was mine.
No. It seems that even by disabling autosave, LyX still attempts to
perform autosaving and the "crash" still occurs. However, this is
little more than an annoyance since the app doesn't actually crash
and no work is lost.
Do you confirm that by disabling autosave LyX 18.104.22.168 works all
right on MAC OS X 10.6?
IMHO it is a little more than annoyance, as the crash notification
window always pops up having focus.
That is, it is selected and in front of the text I'm writing on. So
that's really a heavy interruption during writing.
LyX -> Preferences -> Look & Feel -> User Interface -> "Backup
Documents every XXX Minutes"
If so, would you please remind us how to disable autosave?
As said, you can't really disable autosave. No matter which number you
type here, LyX does automatic saving.
I don't know if this is only a Mac specific issue or happens on all
platforms. If so, what is the use of this preference?
What do others say?
Would it be possible --as an intermediate workaround solution-- to
make some code changes to autosave completely disable autosave and
release this as a MacOSX-10.6-only Lyx-version?
