Description of problem:
when using AbiWord in Fedora core 1 (kernel 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl) :-
1) I open (import) a RTF file
2) I cut a number of lines, I create a nuew document
3) I paste the lines into the new document
4) I save the new document as a text (txt) file, I close the new
document's window down
6) Sometime the crash happens then, sometimes I have to repeat the
"cut,create,paste,save as" sequence a couple of times before it crashes.
7) The X error message says "Applicate "AbiWord" (process 2073) has
crashed due to a fatal error. (Aborted)"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Cut and paste into newly created doc
2.Save doc as TXT file
3.Close down doc's window

Actual Results:  X Error message

Expected Results:  Nothing

Can you attach to the abiword process with gdb and then get a
backtrace of when it aborts?
Comment 2 Tony Pattison 2004-01-04 10:26:22 EST
The following was printed in the gdb terminal window:-

Program received SIGSEGV,Segmentation Fault.
[Switching to Thread - 1085353856 (LWP 2021)]

And a "bt" command gave :-
0x00000000 in ?? ()

I hope this helps.

I can't reproduce this with abiword 2.0.7-1 :-(. It could be fixed in
a later release than 2.0.2, or might be something to do with a
specific font or locale. Can you try with a later version (FC2), and
if it still persists attach a sample document which causes the crash
when cut and paste from.
