Error: Attempted to release an unallocated string handle

Error Message

Starting ARC with an additional module and then accessing a second module will cause an error when exiting both modules. For example:

prompt% arc arcedit
Arcedit: arc tables
Tables: quit
Arcedit: quit
Attempted to release an unallocated string handle.

On UNIX, the error message will appear on the command window. On Windows NT and 2000, the error will appear on the command window and the window will hang. The command window will then have to be closed manually.

Cause

This is a known limitation.

Solution or Workaround

Start Arc without the additional module and then start the second module.

Code:
prompt% arc
Arc: tables
Tables: quit
