Description Itai Nahshon 2001-03-24 06:56:41 EST
Gimp crashes when I select the font 'newspaper' in the
Text Tool font menu.

The font in problem is containd in the file
which is part of the package XFree86-4.0.3-1. 

It's likely that the the problem is actually not is the Gimp but in one of
the underlyng libraries (gtk/gdk/X11).

This is a 2-byte font.. could gtk+ have problems with this? Owen?
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-03-28 15:57:48 EST
It does work with other 2 byte fonts, though - and the stack of gimp is about 52
k entries deep when it crashes.

Once I get information from Matt about his bug, will make
a package with the following:

Comment 5 Itai Nahshon 2001-03-28 18:03:53 EST
Gimp does not work correctly with other 2 byte fonts but it does not crash.
One thing special about the font "newspaper": It does not contain characters
in the 7-bit ASCII range. I think we expect that fonts that are calle
are expected to contain at least a minimal subset.
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2001-03-30 12:41:12 EST
This is a gtk+ bug.

After applying the patch, gimp no longer crashes when using the font... but the
text in this font is _tiny_.
