Description Persio Barros 2006-03-24 06:14:32 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a document with a picture inside a float. For example, go to
help->User's Guide.

2. Navigate to the page with the picture float. In the example given, go to
section 4.3 Figures and Imported Graphics.

Actual results:

Expected results:
The picture should be displayed

Looks like a dup of bug #184508
Comment 2 Persio Barros 2006-03-24 11:25:26 EST
Yes, indeed.
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.
