RE: 1.18 header candidates cause download exception
correction. It has only been broken since 1.18.4 when support for cross
endorsement was added. Also, you don't need to regenerate artwork.
You will, however, need 1.18.8.
cause an exception at line 659 (or thereabouts) for GEMS 1.18 right back to
1.18.1. Fix will be in GEMS 1.18.8. You will unfortunately need to
regenerate existing artwork. The problem has to do with voting positions
being stored for header candidates, even though header candidates have no
voting position. This was found with Greg's new york database
attached with the "error when trying to queue cross endorse Vote
Centre" bugtrack posted Tue 11/20/2001. In that database header
candidates are being used as placeholders for parties which do not field a
candidate in a race. If you are creating a party-row or party-col
database, use the by row/col layout feature instead of header candidates to
get the same effect.
