Gedit crashes with Tamil text
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gedit
2. Open the attached test case
Gedit should not crash, and display the contents of the file.
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:

Fixed in GNOME CVS, will try to build a new package soon.
