New user got unexpected error messages in v5.0.0


#1

When I started kicad 5.0.0 this morning, an error dialog box appeared saying:
20181010_kicad_assertion_failed1
Dialog Box:
/build/kicad-5.0.0+dfsg1/common/project.cpp(83): assert "m_project_name.GetExt() == ProjectFileExten

Backtrace

So I clicked the [Copy to Clipboard] button and got this text:

ASSERT INFO:
/build/kicad-5.0.0+dfsg1/common/project.cpp(83): assert "m_project_name.GetExt() == ProjectFileExten

BACKTRACE:
[1] wxEntry(int&, wchar_t**)
[2] __libc_start_main
[3] _start

After clicking the [Continue] button on the dialog, kicad gave me another dialog box error message:


So I clicked the [Copy] button and got this text:

The message surprised me because I had no intention of opening this project,
555_PWM_AC.

The following text appeared in the right-hand-side of the main kicad GUI on a white
background:

Project name:
/home/george/kicad4/555-PWM-relay/555_PWM_AC/555_PWM_AC.sch

Maybe I simply didn’t properly close this project – could that be it? No, actually, I don’t recall ever opening it w/ kicad 5.0.0.
EDIT: When I tried to open the project I had last been working on
(KiCad5.0.0_dfsg1-2-bpo9+1//home/george/kicad5/BuildElectronicCircuits.demo/BuildElectronicCircuits_demo.pro
I got another error message in another dialog box,

If there’s anything I can do to fix kicad, please let me know.
