Hobbyist user here, running VSI V8.4-2L1 with freeAXP build 670.
VSI, possibly accidentally, gave hobbyists SFTP access to their patches collection, and I installed all available AXP patches for V8.4-2L1.
After applying patches, I note that the freeAXP 'idle' function is no longer functional.
FreeAXP appears to be using some sort of heuristic, or possibly knowledge of a code sequence related to entering idle state within process_management.exe, to hook the kernel idle state; hence, a change within process_management.exe is causing the problem. Just a hunch.
If true, this would be affecting commercial users as well.
Not a biggie for me, but thought you should be aware.
