Here's a little GLI bug. If you create a shortcut, e.g. to sample_files, then delete or move the folder sample_files, the GLI will not let you delete the shortcut. The only way to get rid of it is to recreate something with the same name, and then delete it from the shortcut list using the right-click menu in the GLI.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed
  1. Upon loading, GLI now checks to see if the files that the shortcuts point to exist, before adding them to the list of shortcuts.
  1. If the location ceased to exist during GLI's execution, can use the Remove option in the Right Click menu on the expired shortcut to delete it as usual.
  1. An obscure problem of the user being in the process of creating a shortcut when the location is moved or deleted before they created it, is now resolved as well. An error message warns the user that the location no longer exists.
