Description of the issue

Filemaker hangs/crashes when it cannot find a referenced Value List from another file.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Build a Filemaker database file ("B") and create a Value List ("test" or similar). Save/close "B"

Build a Filemaker database file ("A") then navigate to "File" -> "Manage" -> "Value Lists" and add a new Value List, from another file ("B", "test"). Save/close "A."

Delete or move "B" to another directory, or rename file "B" to "C"

Open file "A", navigate to "File" -> "Manage" -> "Value Lists" ; Filemaker will hang/crash.

I have to either find the old file and rename it or move it back, or if it has been deleted, build a new file with the same old file name and same value list name.
