ELPH 310HS Issue-Freezing While Taking a Shot if I don't Pre-Focus

So I just installed CHDK on my ELPH 310HS.  It appears to have been installed correctly.  I can get to the ALT menu and shoot in RAW.  The issue is that when I try to take a shot without half-pressing the shutter button to auto-focus the camera freezes and I need to restart the camera.  This happens in both RAW and JPEG mode.  It also appears to take a very long time to save each photo while in RAW.  I understand they are about 5 times the size, so maybe this is normal.  I have a 4gb class 4 SD card that I formatted in FAT16 in Cardtricks, maybe that's the issue?

Just to add, re-formatted into FAT32 and used the in-camera function to make the card bootable.  No change.  Still freezing if I don't pre-focus before taking a shot.

How do you restartt?  Power switch?  Or do you have to pull the battery?  You could try creating a ROMLOG in the debug menu and posting here. Iif the camera is actually crashing - that would help track this down.

This happens in both RAW and JPEG mode. 
Are there any overrides ( Tv for example ) enabled ?

How long is "long" ?  The processor does some extra work on the image prior to saving as RAW.  And the save itself takes time.   I've seen as long as 4 seconds extra per shot with a class 2 SD card.

If CHDK loads, then Cardtricks worked fine.  And having a 4G card is irrelevant too.

Just to add, re-formatted into FAT32 and used the in-camera function to make the card bootable.  No change.  Still freezing if I don't pre-focus before taking a shot.
See my comment above.

I can turn it back on with the power button.  No overrides that I know of, dont remember setting anything like that up.  Time to save a RAW file is around 5.25 seconds.  Can I just view the log file in the root directory of my sd card?

Bump, any ideas?  Try a different card?

Bump, any ideas?
Well,  you might need to ask the question in the right thread - normally the porting thread for the camera in question. In this case that would be http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6341

In general,  there are only a few people who help out here regularly .. less than ten  ... so posting in the right thread sometimes draws in people who actually own the camera.

Try a different card?
Sure .. try that. But its almost certainly not related to the card.  Without owning the camera,  all I can say is that this seems to be a bug with the implementation of the port.   Which can likely only be solved by a CHDK developer with access to the camera.    So you might be stuck .. or just have to do a "half press" before each shot - which does not seem like such a big thing in the scheme of things ?

Got it.  I shoot a lot of backcountry skiing, so I'm constantly pulling the camera out without much setup time to captute an image.maybe I could get used to making sure I half press each time before a shot, but it's not ideal.  I'll post in that thread and see if someone can help me out.  New to chdk so some of these terms are new to me, thanks for pointing me to the correct thread.

I have found and fixed a bug, can you test whether the issue is resolved? Use the most recent autobuild release (revision 2591 or higher).

Very nice!  That's been there since the port was first released back at r1438.

I wonder if it also solves this :  http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6341.msg92532#msg92532
