I posted this in the forum and was asked to submit a bug report.

I'm using v.
PHP 4.4.7
Zend Engine v1.3.0
MCrypt 2.4

PHP Groupware frequently returns errors.

If I attempt to edit an address book entry I get a full page of it, then the edit form at the bottom.
If I try to download from file manager, I get a full screen of errors, and cannot download.

Hmmmm. I know nothing about coding this stuff, I just want to use this cool Groupware program!

Sample errors:

"Warning: mcrypt_generic() [function.mcrypt-generic]: An empty string was passed in /home/MYHOSTINGACCOUNT/public_html/office/phpgwapi/inc/class.crypto.inc.php on line 171"

"Warning: mcrypt_generic() [function.mcrypt-generic]: An empty string was passed in /home/MYHOSTINGACCOUNT/public_html/office/phpgwapi/inc/class.crypto.inc.php on line 171"

"Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/MYHOSTINGACCOUNT/public_html/office/phpgwapi/inc/class.crypto.inc.php:171) in /home/MYHOSTINGACCOUNT/public_html/office/phpgwapi/inc/class.phpgw.inc.php on line 152"

Thanks for any help.
