Bug workaround: KLog 0.5.3 crashes if not cty.dat file is found

KA6MAL has warned me about a bug that causes KLog to crash if no cty.dat file is found.

I have filled a bugreport in the bug report system of KLog but, until I release KLog 0.5.4, another bug fix release, I wanted to publish a workaround solution for this bug.

I hope I have time to find the bug and code a fix.

Just download the cty.dat file in your ~/.klog folder/directory and everything will work.

This is an important bug because, as KA6MAL told me affects specially to casual KLog users… that may not know about KLog and the cty.dat file.

Experienced KLog users may not notice anything as the usual thing is that they have an updated cty.dat file. Users having the cty.dat file will not be affected.

For those of you that do know what is ct.dat file… This file provides the country information for KLog.
