Lin_guider : start or restart guiding from EKOS crashes Kstars everytime. was created by Barker

I'm using Kstars 3.1.0 Welcome to KStars 3.1.0 Build: 2018-12-30T07:03:57Z30T07:03:57Z on Ubuntu 18.04 with Lin_guider 4.2.0 on remote Raspberry Pi using Mate 18.04 (indi-full 1.7.6~201812ˆ€, indi-sx 1.13~2019010 )

I noticed recently that guiding would instant crash Kstars for example when clicking 'guide' button in EKOS to start or restart guiding. I tried initialising Lin_guider by ssh commands and over VNC with similar crashes.

If I start Lin_guider (calibrate and guide start) before running Kstars all works well but as soon as I stop/restart a guide session from Ekos I get a crash.

I've been reduced logging on these runs so nothing appears in Kstars logs, just abrupt end . I will try some verbose full logging later. At this stage just reporting the change in behaviour

Anyone else having this issue?

Thanks Jasem, and happy 2019 to you.
Delighted you found the issue without full logs, I've been trying to tweak overall speed so turned logs down.

I've picked up a couple more apparent minor bugs for Canon driver and still can't get SS2K to park but will send/start new post.
