I'm almost positive that zedit-new-and-edit-crash is a bug in OLC+.
I've not been able to do a gdb reading on it yet (mostly because I'm
having a **** of a time trying to narrow down the xap objects bugs)
but if you zedit new, shutdown and reboot, and edit the zone then it
should be fine.

Claiming to have a bug in the patch doesn't help.  I've worked with
all the recent OLC patches and none seemed to have that problem.
Could be it didn't patch into the code right, but since it should
create a new file for zedit.c I don't think there should've been a
problem.  Maybe if you sent me that portion of zedit.c to look at?
