Summary0002254: Tab close crash in FE
DescriptionClosing a tab when running NetSurf under OS4.1FE can cause a crash in specific circumstances.
Steps To ReproduceFrom the hompage, middle-click a link to open it in a background tab.
Close the original tab.
Middle-click a link from the remaining tab to open another new tab.
Close this newly-opened tab.
Behold, crash.
Additional InformationThis appears to be related to a change in clicktab.gadget, where when tabs are closed it switches back to a different tab than it would previously (appears to always be the first tab). In this instance it may be switching to the tab we have already closed.
I think this is a bug in clicktab.gadget but may be able to work around it.
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in CI build #2526
Reported in CI build #2522

Something buggy regarding clicktab IDs causing this. Might well be that CLICKTAB_AutoNumber has managed to get permanently set, and as we were relying on our clicktab ID staying static they stopped matching up. Have changed to use the node addresses instead, which has actually simplified the code.
