Burst mode

If the game is minimized so that a PBEM save is added from e-mail to the save directory, RUS crashes upon return, error message referring to "burst mode".

This is unique only to the situations when something is added to the save directory - minimizing, restoring in other cases works fine.

Unfortunately I cannot find this in any of the logs, but the situation is easy to recreate - minimize, add a new file / directory to the save area, try to restore.

The engine can crash when the screen saver kicks in. Otherwise alt-tabbing to do something else (including adding files into the save directory) works perfectly fine (at least for the vast majority of us). If not, I could not have checked bugs and coded properly in the engine since 2006. ;)

This could be a DirectX 10 problem.

Can you try the proposed solution please (Install DirectX 9) ?

Thanks,
