With this beta DF started crashing for me somewhere between the moment of locking desktop and unlocking it (when I come back to my locked PC and unlock it displayfusion is no longer running)

I've run into this here a couple of times as well but can't reproduce it consistently. Does it always happen for you guys when you lock/unlock?

Right after updating it happened like 80% of times. After a reboot I'm yet to have it crash in 2 days.

Since updating the beta today, Displayfusion has crashed twice today so far when I click on a Titlebar button to move and resize a window to the bottom left corner of my second monitor (which is on the left & in portrait mode). It should move the window to X/Y/W/H of -1050/827/436/815. Not sure I can replicate it, just seems to crash sometimes today but has never done so with previous versions - I have skipped a few betas, but I think this is the first one with the new icons possibly. It has worked OK most of the time today. The main app icons look much better.

I've managed to replicate the crash with the Titlebar buttons with different buttons (both resize and move windows to different places) by hovering the mouse over the button for 10 seconds, noticing the tooltip disappears then reappers, waiting another 3 seconds then clicking the button - seems to happen all the time this way.

EDIT - and it seems to only happen when the window is already on the left most monitor, if I move the window to the main monitor the buttons work OK (to move the window to the left monitor and to the bottom left or top half of that screen)

I have attached the log files (with buffering disabled)
