We should probably grab a new version of dia and see if it's fixed.

Just about everything in the Tools Menu of Dia 0.88 caused a crash.  

RedHat 8 seems to ship with Dia 0.90 
(i am not my own sysadmin on this network i am using today)

Dia 0.90 is way way behind Dia CVS which has been ported to Gnome 2 but
unfortunately Dia developement is not quite well organised enought to make more
regular releases.  Passing of any patches back upstream would be of massive help.  
I am sure help stablising Dia for releases would be appreciated by the
developers.  There are also additional shapesets in CVS that have been added
since  0.90

Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2003-01-06 11:01:25 EST
The Dia in RH8.0 does not have this problem, and you should be able to use that
in 7.3 too.

It's unfortunate that dia for gnome 2 isn't in a releaseable state yet...
