known issue:
  • some crash scenarios exist with Find in the Chat window — e.g. if an empty string is used, an emoticon is part of the string, or a formatted phone number is part of the string (like +44201234567)

  • the main window redrawing may be poor in some cases, the workaround is to disable the watermark
