This looks like
the same bug as Jeff Hintz and Steve Knecht reported under "Opening
Proceedures". I understand it has been fixed, and will be in (I think)
3.13.4. I am not sure when the bug was introduced, nor the nature of the
problem, but Tab might so you can try asking him.
This is a serious
bug. Having a corrupt election.adt on election day will spell disaster,
so if you have a broken release (whatever those are) you'll need to
upgrade. Oddly, El Paso TX ran their last election on 188.8.131.52 and
didn't come across the problem, but like I say I don't know what triggers
it. Or maybe there is a work around; I dunno.
Understood your reply below and it sounded very
sane. However, I can download any vc, except One Stop. I receive
a New message after downloading:
The following error has been
Exception in BallotStation
Invalid file header - election.adt
Why does this look familiar. I've check
previous support & bugtrack emails and no luck.
