Hi Laurent,

Thanks for getting back to me so fast.  I appreciate your help.

I've tried editing the Member calendar [1] and when I tried to remove  
the "October" block using both the regular editing page and the  
source view,  Amaya crashes.

I was able to edit the TPAC page the other day using this version of  
Amaya (though this was adding not removing info) [2].  I just tried  
cutting a section from the page and I note it didn't immediately  
crash.  I tried cutting a similar block of text from the Past Events  
calendar [3] and Amaya didn't crash. I'm not sure why it would only  
crash with the Member calendar document.    I then tried cutting the  
"April" and "November" sections of the Member calendar and Amaya  
didn't crash -- just with the "October" section.  It's very strange.
