BUG? Scrub when you have "Error opening sound device"

Peter Sampson-2
I just ran into an "interesting" situation on my old XP desktop.

I was planning on trying scrubbing to test its smoothness.  I had however totally
forgotten that it has no soundcard so, unless I plug my Edirol UA-1EC in I get
the "Error openeing sond device ..." message.

So I launch audacity, drag in a 3 minute WAV file.

Then when I go to invoke scrubbing from the Scrub Ruler I get not one of those error
messages but a veritable semi-infinite cascade of them ('twas a bit like Mickey Mouse
in the Sorcerer's apprentice scenes from Fantasia).

The only way to stop it was a quick CTRL+ALT+Delete to get the Task Manager and
force quit Audacity.

Now given that I am not the only person in the Audacity-world who gets this error message
and a lot of this appear to be a bit computer naive,is this something we should be worried
about - and something we should be logging on Bugzilla?

Any thoughts on this Paul?

Peter.

Thanks, Peter. I can replicate that on Windows 10 by launching Audacity
then disabling a playback device in Windows Sound or by pulling out the
USB cable of a USB sound device. Scrub or Seek both trigger the
problem.

I suggest, so early in the development cycle, to call it P1 and fix it so
there is only one error message. Not tested yet on Mac or Linux.

@Gale,  so are you going to log this on Bugzilla Gale?  I can't see it there yet.

Peter.

There seems to be a misconception that "Bugs Czar" has to log
all the bugs reported on this list. Anyone can do that, surely,
once agreed here it is a bug?

But yes I made a note and I will put it up overnight if no-one else
tests it on Linux and Mac and puts it up there. Same goes with
the preview failure in non-RTP effects.
