Comment 2 Caolán McNamara 2020-02-08 19:09:22 UTC
took me a while to figure this out, seems that sfxlo-OptionalBox is in the wrong library so those entries in the .ui file are created under Linux but are null under windows, so under windows the parent widgets of these are not as expected.

> @Mike, could you please try with a clean profile ?

Just did make clean && make, and confirm it fixed. Seems some problem resulting from mixing profiles with normal installation because of using --enable-release-build. Sorry for the noise, and thanks!

I guess we can close it now
@Caolán, thanks for fixing this issue!!
