The 8.x Standard client should have a standard and easy way to troubleshoot crashes/problems. Now, when the Expeditor-part of the Standard client crashes it gives a pug-ugly and more importantly USELESS and huge error box (like the attached image). Troubleshooting the cause is very painful (like this)! When the Notes plug-in part crashes, it uses the traditional and pretty useful NSD process. While the NSD process is pretty esoteric and hard for normal humans to understand, at least you can derive from it where the issue is that caused the crash.

I think this is due to the plug-in architecture of eclipse.

@1 -
A) True and well understood.
B) So? IBM is a major player in the development of eclipse. Fix it.

It's also a fixed size box, for a 1280 x 960 screen
At lower resolution, you can't get to the button at the bottom

Who would disagree with this proposal, debugging the standard client is a nightmare. Even IBM can't help much, I've been through a few support calls with them and frankly it's quicker to reinstall.
