I was testing if SQRL would be bothered by the new Windows protections. In a mostly clean Windows 10 Preview machine I downloaded and installed SQRL. When it finished installing, it launched me to the install/welcome page on the forums, and I clicked on the register option from there, forgetting that I had not yet created or imported an identity. That caused the forum web page to refresh away from the registration page, at which point I realized I needed to create the identity. I started through the process, and after I pressed enter on my chosen identity name, the client crashed (no UI event, it just closed/disappeared.) I checked the reliability monitor, and there was a crash event noted.

After relaunching the SQRL client I was able to complete the identity creation without further difficulties, and then registered and posted this message. I presume that the attempt to use it with no identity present before completing the identity creation is what was the source of the bug I encountered.
