Description Jatin Nansi 2004-08-16 04:37:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Loading UTF8 tamil text in Gedit causes it to crash. It does not
matter what font is used. It does not even matter if a tamil font is
in use. Gedit will crash regardless.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gedit
2. Open the attached test case
Actual results:
Gedit crashes

Expected results:
Gedit should not crash, and display the contents of the file.

Additional info:
This is tested on rawhide. This file opens fine in FC2 gedit (2.6.0-4). 
I am attaching a back trace from gedit.
To test this out, Tamil fonts are available in the following RPM:
