           Summary: A missing client config in synapse.config = crash
           Product: GtkRadiant
           Version: 1.3
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: editor
        AssignedTo: ttimo@idsoftware.com
        ReportedBy: hydra@hydras-world.com

If you drop a .dll in modules/ that requires a client config an access 
violation occurs on line 666 (!) of synapse.cpp in 
CSynapseServer::SelectClientConfig() if that config can't be found.

e.g.  I dropped in spritemodel.dll (MODEL_MAJOR, "sprite" minor) and hadn't 
updated my synapse.config (for quake3).  The when you add the client config to 
synapse.config it all works correctly.

the missing part of synapse.config is as follows:

  <client name="sprite">
    <api name="shaders">
    <api name="VFS">

The crash occurs because pNode in this line is null

  // focus
  mpFocusedNode = pNode->children;  <-- CRASH!

if I add this before it:

  if (!pNode)
    return false; // Hydra: fixes crash if client config cannot be found.

the crash moves to CSynapseServer::PushRequired(), line 417:

      int j,jmax = pScanClient->GetAPICount();

pScanClient is NULL.

Over to you ttimo.
