crash on start-up absent network connection [bug/annoyance]

Jul 1, 2013 at 10:35 PM
DE attempts to connect to 50.61.233.181:80 each time it is started and if the connection is refused, it crashes

a) why is making this connection? is this necessary?
b) it should not crash absent a network connection

It is when it gets the icon for the devices connected.

I agree that it should not crash if network connection is not enabled. I will look in to this.

it seems to connect to the device fine and the complete GUI is displayed ... then after a few seconds, without doing anything, it crashes (program not responding)

why is it connecting to 50.61.233.181:80?
