Text Removal Crash

Running off of a Flashdrive on Windows XP SP3, Musescore 0.9.5 r1598 I ran into the following issue.

While trying to input notes onto a percussion staffs (claves in this instance), I ran into an crash.
It occurred while trying to drag (what looked like) a quarter note from the drum tab on the Palette on to the score. This caused a system crash, and I duplicated the results several times.

It wasn't until later that I realized that when I used the program all of the text in the program (title, author, tempo markings, and instruments) disappeared leaving gray spaces. None could be input, however running on any other version of the program brought the text back.

Clearly somehow the text is still embedded in the file itself, even after I edit and make changes, and my program was corrupted somehow. I have not reinstalled or deleted it yet, if someone wants me to post certain files, or zip the entire program...

I talked to a friend of mine who helps develop and he had never heard of it.


Confirmed: drag-and-drop of notes from the drum palette causes MuseScore to crash. (r.1619, Windows XP). To add a note to the percussion staff click and item from the drum palette to select it and then click on the staff. Do not drag-and-drop notes from percussion palette.

Feel free to attach the file with disappearing text.
