Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:06 EST
Description of problem:
xfig crashed today. I had two figures open, one contained just text. I got into
"rectangle" and tried to set the fill color when xfig crashed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Had a file open, opened a new figure. Added text, moved it around.
2.Opened object editor on text, closed it again without doing anything
3.Went for rectangle object, was about to set fill color

xfig traceback output, copy&paste from a gnome-terminal
BTW, I was using LANG=en_US.ISO88591 to work around UTF-8 input bug (see
Created attachment 114514 [details]
New xfig backtrace
Seems more complete than the first one, which looks unfinished to my untrained
Just opening a xfig and touching "pen color" or "fill color" for rectangle
It's now fixed in xfig-3.2.4-11, which will be available in rawhide soon. Many
thanks for your report.
