in thread Problem with getSaveFile in 'pp'-mode

I ran it with the lowercase-x-option. That does not seem to cure it. However, running with the uppercase-C-option and lowercase-x-option - that combination finally worked.
In my opinion, the uppercase-C-option cleans-up the temp-files at runtime once the application terminates. Shall this be reported as a 'bug' (in this case I would not know who to contact) or should it be silently accepted? What is your advise?

    Good work! Can you create a minimal example, providing nothing more than the code required to replicate this problem, then the two pp calls that generate the different outcomes? I'm not at home right now but will test this on multiple platforms using the same version of the modules in question. The last time I suggested someone use -x to solve this problem they were under the impression that this should be the default, or at least display a message at run time explaining things. I suggested that they raise this with the maintainers, but it doesn't look like this has happened. Perhaps we can address this concern.

      Could you please use the code snippet as well as the pp-command from my initial message.

        Why? pp -x blah does the trick

        So I switched to 5.14.2, with -x I can't replicate this problem. Sorry it took me a while to get round to this, it's been pretty hectic.

    Well, many folks have trouble with pp, its just not simple enough, but no, its not very likely that you've found a bug
