Stack trace given by Calc after the crash.
Hmm, a crash in icu. What's the output of rpm -q libicu ?
> rpm -q libicu
I suspect there was a new font added to the system which triggers this problem,
e.g. one of the new malayalam microsoft fonts like Kartika
If you are able to, can you try and download
and rpm --upgrade it and see if that fixes the problem ?
Ah yes indeed, Kartika is present. I have a set of fonts ripped from an
installation of that other OS, packaged as a rpm and installed on a number of
Fedora boxes. I did the ripping at least two years ago, so that version of
Kartika et al. are not 'new'.
The libicu from Koji (comment #5) does fix this for me. 'Format Cells' now works
with all the fonts installed. Thanks a lot.
