Re: Potential Issue 4.3.11 BS

    This problem will re-occur after casting the same number of ballots as before (ie every 100 ballots).  The best solution is to re-boot the system every 100 ballots (or so) while at the Insert Voter Card screen.

Tab, some of the units, seems like most are freezing, not allowing them to respond.  If they reboot, it may solve the problem for a while, but usually comes back.  Are we running the risk of losing votes by powering down and up a number of times.

I have tracked down the problem.
The problem is with the memory for the text on the Instruction screen not being released after it has been used. This problem was fixed in BS 4.1.12.

Steve, Tab is looking at this, and will call Merle from the KSU Election Center when he is able to provide more meaningful information.

In Ga. we're seeing the following error:
"Program Memory Critically Low"
The directions we've received are:
1) touch the OK button
2) Do you wish to convert stored memory to program memory? - Touch OK or yes
Once the ballot has been cast, re-boot the machine, and continue voting.
