Scheduler: Warning: job xxxx target fits file does not exist

I encountered the error in the Subject all night last night, which I believe is my only session since the 2022-10-19 build. Tried several target files, including one that I newly captured for the purpose of testing.

I could use any of the files in the Align tab for "Load and Slew", so the they certainly do exist. The log is not informative, reporting no more than "Warning: job xxxx target fits file does not exist". I primarily was using the graphical file chooser (as normal), but I also tried typing the file location directly into the box in the Scheduler.

I performed a full power cycle of the whole rig, but the error remained.

No one else has this issue? I've looked for settings that might have gotten bumped accidentally, but nothing seems related.
I tried to install the nightly build, but that says KStars is already up to date and the build remains the same 3.6.1 stable (I have seen others mention this recently in other threads)

Here is a screenshot showing success in the Align tab Load and Slew in the Simulator:


Here is the scheduler, clearly reading the fits header of the same file to obtain the required coordinates:


And here is when the Scheduler tries to run:

opening that fits file with kstars with the fits viewer works without any problem?

Yes, it opens in fitsviewer. And also is successfully plate solved in the Align tab.

It's not just one fits file, by the way. I get the same error from the Scheduler for any fits file I have tried, including one that I have previously used many times in that capacity.

Hi
I think that was broken by d368ebcfc3af71b742243cb45e8378b106ae39d5
Prompted here:

The workaround is to simply use coordinates only.

Thanks, Steve. I remember glancing at your thread but thinking it was about a dslr issue, so I did not continue reading it. Good to know I don't have an issue that is unique to my installation.
