Trying to enter URL for logotype locks the application

Head for Settings > Effects > Logotype, and try to enter a URL like https://jgromit.jalbum.net/qm16.png. On my PC, at least, that causes jAlbum to lock up, and I have to kill the task.

Oddly, it works if I paste the entire URL into the field. It fails only if I try typing the URL by hand.

ETA: On my Macbook, it's Force Quit time if I do that - it ain't just the PC!

Thanks for reporting. Seems to be caused by a Java 13 bug. (Works in Java 14).

It was a surprising one - I had to triple-check to make sure I wasn't chasing a phantom.

Really bizarre that a "paste" works - I would not have predicted that!

I guess it's because it's not the loading of a complete working URL that fails but the loading of an incomplete one. This effect tries to load the image on each key press. Perhaps not the best design...
