Bug Reports

The following is a list of known bugs. Each bug report describes the bug, a possible work around, who reported it (User or Developer), versions affected (All or build number/s), impact on analysis (None or description), and priority to find a fix (very low, low, intermediate, high, very high).

The impact on analysis describes whether the user should be concerned about the bug's affect on their analysis. If the value is listed as None then all analyses are unaffected and it only impacts other non-essential aspects of the program. Otherwise, the user should take note of the description to see if might affect their analysis. If in any doubt please email

  1. Description of Problem: A memory leak during an analyis of positive selection
    Reported by: Developer
    Date: 10/12/2009
    Versions affected: All
    Impact on Analysis: Unnecessary consumption of memory. Results are not affected.
    Priority: High


    Occasionally SIMMAP may crash after an analysis of positive selection. If the statistics are saved during an analysis nothing is lost. The problem has been mostly ameliorated. The problem seems to involve the kernel and terminating the analysis thread.

  2. Description of Problem: Possible intermittent crash after performing an association/correlation analysis

    Versions affected: All
    Impact on Analysis: Crash. Results are not affected.
    Priority: High

    Printed output is not properly placed on the page unless the Tree View window is resized to its smallest size. Even this work around produces an additional blank page which can be eliminated by selecting to print only the first page.
