Toggling the Live Waterfall eventually stops SmartSDR v1.5.1

System - Win7/64 i7 PC (one of Neal N3KC's DXer's Dream Machines) w/SmartSDR v1.5.1 with the 6700, with the usual companion programs (CAT/DX/DDUtil...) plus N1MM+ and an instance of IE running.

After a variable number of Waterfall Stops (clicking the side bar) and returning to running Waterfall with the "Live" button, SmartSDR terminates in two steps.  The GUI terminates with the Audio running, then the Audio disconnects with a "Connection Lost" window appearing.

Duplicates regularly, but not at the same number of start/stops (ranges from a single start/stop cycle to perhaps seven-eight cycles.)

Falls into the annoying but not the end of the world, sort of issue - as perhaps few of us play with stopping the waterfall very much.

    I have exactly the same computer and same things running except not IE.   I cannot get it to crash no matter how many times I start/stop the the waterfall.    

    I guess we can blame Microsoft again with IE the only variable missing in my reproduction.   Who knows what other little gremlins crept in from somewhere........
