Notes 9 client crash when sending emails

There is a „little“ problem in the IBM Notes 9 client when you use (implemented in Notes 8.5.3) an INI parameter for the clear the recent contacts view at next Notes client startup (PURGE_RECENTS_CONTACTS=1)

After try to send an email the client will crash!!!

So please remove the entry before upgrading to Notes 9 and then you could be happy
