File Incomplete - Continue Anyway??

I have started to see an error "File Incomplete - Continue Anyway" after slicing a file..

If I re-slice it as a new file it generally works.. But oldly the 2 files are an identical size.. But one prints, the other give the error.

I am starting to think it has something to do with the filename.... But I can't work out how to reproduce this.

I don't think I saw this before I went to Slicer 2.2.0, so it could be an issue with the new release.

Has anyone else seen it?

There was an ignored error in the gcode:

GCodeParser error at line(18): Invalid Char '"' in GCode stream.

Line 18 in the bad file is

M205 S0 T0 ; sets the minimum extruding and travel feed rate, mm/sec

and in the good

M205 S0 T0 ; sets the minimum extruding and travel feed rate, mm/sec

I can't see anything wrong.... I just ran the files through a 'diff' checker and they are the same.. So the plot thickens.

I don’t have the answer but offer some brainstorming FWIW. In case the two files differ in size by just a few bytes, I’d consider the possibility that a stray NULL or <CR> character has been inserted either ON or ADJACENT to line 18 by the slicer in error. A hex dump around line 18 might show the issue. I’d definitely file a bug report if this were the case.

Its weird... I have even done a checksum (MD5) of the 2 files and they are identical...... So I don't know whats going on as the files are essentially the same.

But one reports an error on the printer and the other not.. I need to do some more tests as this is more than a little odd.

As a test, can you rename BOTH files to some generic name like a.gcode and b.gcode and see if either one prints?
