Foundation F1.3, Logic Simulator: Simulator will hang if status line has been deselected

The Foundation Logic Simulator used to load the netlist properly, however it now hangs with a grey background showing. Only the Netlist Loading window and Menu selections appear. Clicking on "Cancel" has no affect either.
This occurs if either intentionally or inadvertently, the status line was deselected from the Logic Simulator Menu:
View -> Status Line
The workaround is the following:
1) Ctrl-Alt-Delete to bring up the Windows NT Security
Click on Task Manager Select the Logic Simulator and click on End Task
2) Go to the Foundation Project Manager
File -> Configuration -> View Ini File (Susie.ini) Search -> Find -> enter in "status"
3) In the [Simulator] section, you should find the following:
4) Manually edit this to read:
5) Save -> Exit -> OK
The Logic Simulator should now load properly when invoked.
*NOTE: This issue has been resolved in Foundation F1.4
