Vista Workstation crashes when the content of a column in any View (Alarms, Events, Search Results etc.) exceeds 259 characters.
In the unlikely event that the content of a column in a Vista View exceeds a limit of 259 characters, Vista Workstation crashes and must be restarted. Vista Server is not affected.
The problem was discovered while doing a search for TGML graphics, with the property "Bindings" selected. The search returns one graphic on each row and all the bindings for that graphic are displayed in the property column on that row.
Upgrade to Vista 5.1.8, when available. The issue is fixed by truncating the contents of any View column to 259 characters.
The issue is highly unlikely to occur in normal use. In the case of the Bindings search, the workaround is to use the "Change Reference" tool instead
