[Mesquitelist] Cartographer bug

There is apparently a conflict or "bug" produced by Cartographer in Mesquite that produces a loop or blocks the program from vizualizing trees. When requesting a new tree window in the "Taxa and trees" menu, Cartographer apparetly overrides the usual steps for selecting stored trees, and asks directly for a map, this precludes opening any tree. After several installations and unistallations, I found that by manually erasing the preferences and some other files related to mesquite in the hard drive the problem is fixed.
It seems that Cartographer saves its preferences for particular files, and overrides the normal menu sequence for new tree windows. This creates a conflict when opening trees in other mesquite files not related to the Cartographer procedure. The only solution is perhaps to erase the preferences and maybe other related programs, specially those that are not erased during the unistall.
