Description of problem:
"Kicad killed by SIGSEGV"
Moving components in eschema or pcbnew (using the default canvas) causes a complete
application crash that takes out the window manager as well (I've tried icewm, GNOME shell and XMonad).
The application freezes and keyboard + mouse become unresponsive immediately, it takes a few seconds for
the wm to crash and fall back to the desktop manager (GDM) which seems unaffected.
In eschema or pcbnew, open a schematic and move components, lines and text around.
This crash is not triggered predictably and has occurred for me anywhere
between the first action I take, and after hours of use. Using the 'M' key to pick up and
move an item around with the mouse is how I've usually casued the crash.
I've seen this crash when building library components, schematics and PCBs which to me
implies that it's rendering or canvas related. (I'm not familiar with KiCad's code)
Kixcad v4.0.7, release build

This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '27'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
