Progress, I can now reproduce this at will on both Win and Linux


Linux Lubuntu64 3.16.0-67-generic
2.6.11 home build

I'm working on creating a suitably anonymous test file set because the

load 3 multi-col reports, the 4th will go wrong

isn't going to stand up by itself as it requires a certain sequence and
certain reports.  I'll add to bugzilla once I've got the e.g. done.

The work around is to exit and not save any reports, the problem with
the work around is it isn't always obvious a report has gone wrong so
not really a work around.
