retext crashes after start with enchant error
Last modified: 2016-02-29 00:25:35 EST
I have retext-5.3.0-1 installed on Fedora 23. If I start retext, the application crashes shortly after startup. I end up with an enchant error in the terminal:
Using configuration file: /home/major/.config/ReText project/ReText.conf
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/ReText/highlighter.py", line 129, in highlightBlock
if not self.dictionary.check(match.group(0)):
File "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/enchant/__init__.py", line 634, in check

enchant.errors.Error: Dict unusable: the underlying C-library object has been freed.
After some digging, this appears in a Debian bug as well: https://bugs.debian.org/812149
The patch merged into the upstream repository two weeks ago: https://github.com/retext-project/retext/commit/39603255072313423a17d9207c6b1ec613d9825b
This patch also fixes the problem for me. Would it be possible to include this upstream patch in retext 5.3.0?
Thanks for the report, I will have a look on the issue.
