LyX-qt crashes when openning a page with a picture inside a float
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
If you try to open a LyX document which have a picture (eps, pdf, fig, etc)
inside float (which is the most common place for a picture), the program crashes
with SIGSEGV while trying to display the page which contains that float.
Interestingly, Lyx doesn't crash if the picture is "in line", i.e. outside a
float environment. It doesn't crashes either if the float is empty or with
documents that have table floats.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a document with a picture inside a float. For example, go to
2. Navigate to the page with the picture float. In the example given, go to
section 4.3 Figures and Imported Graphics.
The picture should be displayed
This may be a severer version of bug 186319
Looks like a dup of bug #184508
Sorry, I didn't see that bug submition. It was submited for the "devel" version,
which I didn't try.
By the way, why was LyX-1.4.0-4 deployed in the Fedora-extras-5 final with this
severe and already known bug?

Didn't know until recently how widespread the problem really was. Before now,
we'd only had 1 report from 1 user.
