    LW 2020 bug/CRASH for fiber fx settings

    Apologies for double post I posted in the wrong section I think.
    Anyway, I tried setting up a simple ball with hair scene which worked OK. Then I saved the settings for ffx and loaded up again and tried to load the ffx settings I had just saved. LW then crashes. I tested it on a previous version and it works fine. So somethings not right with ffx in LW 2020.

    Confirmed, appears 100% reliable, and consistent in cause/location. Reloading saved FFX config (using Edit->Load in FFX panel) leads to reliable segfault. Appears to be an NPE/AV from "com.newtek.LightWave.FFlt + 117771" calling strcmp with an invalid parameter (likely bad/unowned/uninit'd ptr).

    Dev needs to figure out what line of code correlates with that module offset (obviously a call to strcmp() which ought to narrow it down), then figure out what param to strcmp() is causing the segfault (and why).
