I humbly request this information be added to the documentation
to keep people from going crazy thinking they're just looking in
the wrong place (clarifying exactly where they're supposed to be
looking in the documentation is also a good idea). Or have the
UI *not* disappear, but be disabled with an explanation.

Did anyone from SlimDevices see the bug report about the server
crashing?

That's a good suggestion. I'll see that we do the right thing.

I hadn't noticed it in that message. Do you have a way to reproduce
the crash?

On the device, go to Settings->Information->Plugins->[any plugin] and
then hit the right arrow. Server goes down.

(this is from memory, so the actual menu items to choose may vary, but
you get the idea)

Dean,

I recall mention of that. To shortcut a little debuggin, its due to a bad ref
in Line 160. Information.pm looks for the next level in the menu, and since
there is none...it dies. can't use "" as a reference while "strict refs" in use.
