I also experienced the same problem. Spent a lot of contest time troubleshooting and many lost Q's. I had well over a dozen crashes. Luckily I only had to reload WSJTx and not reboot the computer. Had some crazy Error messages after reloading. It appeared to me that the problem is primarily in FT4 mode. One member from Our club (FRC) used the newer candidate version and didn't experience any problems.
Now that we have all brought attention to this problem, what is the recommendation from the designers? I assume they are part this group. Was this problem known and a fix implemented in the New candidate version?

I had a similar situation here.
I tried it both through N1MM and as stand-alone and had crashes both ways

While participating the the RTTY Roundup today, WSJT-X version 2.2.2 running on Windows version 10.0.19041.685 crashed 17 times. It happened every time on receive and most of the time when I'd clicked on a link when someone was calling CQ and they responded. Sometimes it would happen when a direct call was made and they responded. Usually restarting the program got things going again. At one point, a complete reboot was required. It hasn't crashed during regular usage. Something similar to this was happening during Field Day when using a different computer. Let me know if I can provide any additional information.

It would certainly help the developers if you could cut and paste the error message so they see for themselves what is going wrong.
