Remote Assistant RAW Bug

Has anyone else found that shooting with the K20D through remote assistant (using 3.51) at an exposure longer then 0.7 seconds in RAW causes the software to freeze ?

Seems like a big bug

Is it freezing, or is the transfer time long enough that it appears to be freezing?

If you do a search you will find that there are numerous complaints about Remote Assistance. Mostly freezes, it is very poorly written software.

I have problems as well with it on my laptop, on my home PC I have fewer problems. It will run on the laptop, but more often than I like it will lock up . Its always during transfer and seems to be some kind of infinite loop with no break.

BTW I did not know it was full of bugs either, this is the first time I have read of it. Too bad, its a very handy program when it works. And I just did a test with a RAW file longer than one second and it did not lock up on my laptop. But it will sooner than latter I have found its best to format the card before hooking it up, it seems to give fewer problem ?. However the RAW >.07sec transfer alone is not a bug, its full of bugs.
