Hi Terrance,

Thats a know bug in mysql codecs under linux, it do not appear on windows.
I will try to fix it.

The exception you get is related to The Snitch but the rest of Pantera
should work fine.

About the rest of your email not sure what you mean.

If you mean that you tried to open your project in other computer and
getting an error thats because each page you visited is saved in binary
form in the filesystem and the analysis info obtained is saved into the
DDBB (mysql).

So you need to copy the SessionData directory in your linux to the
SessionData on windows, the DDBB is transparent.
