Strange bug

I've been hitting this bug at least once a day for the past couple of days.  Every once and a while when I edit the index.html file CD adds some characters to the tail end.  It seems to take the last few characters of the file and duplicates them at the end of the file.  Sometimes it even does it 3 times.  I then end up with some strange text and a couple of extra </html> tags.  Rediting the file and deleting the extra characters does not always work.  It accepts my changes and allows me to save and close but when I preview, publish or re-open the file the garbage is still there.

Has anyone else seen this one?  Is there a workaround or a known way to make it disappear?

Thanks,
Ben

Short story: we know, it will be fixed in SP1, and if it happens you should restart CityDesk and then delete the junk to make it go away.

Excellent.  Thanks Joel.  Any indication of when SP1 will be in beta or released?  Will SP1 include any new features?

Incidentally, how would I have found that thread?  I'm interested in reading through more of the older topics on here.
