Dear all,

if I try to open a library in  3.2.5b first it takes a long time before the menu open.
Than after selecting a Library to load I get a lot of errors

File xxx.fig
Figure  resolution or coordinate specifier missing in line 5
Error reading xxx.fig

By the way get this error also if I use the file open menu for the library files

What is really strange is if I open the same files on a different computer it works without a problem.

The fstab is also the same on both computers. The only difference I see is that the computer on which I have the problem has a Portuguese (Brasil) language settings in Windows

Had someone encounter similar problems or know a solution for this?

Have fun
