.gnome/gtali config/settings file which appears to trigger a segfault in gtali (333 bytes, text/plain)

Description Bill Crawford 2001-06-09 13:53:52 UTC
Basically gtali was segfaulting every time on startup (the main window
never appeared, just the "a fault occurred" popup).  I renamed the
config/settings file out of the way and it started up OK.

I'm attaching in a moment the file that was there.

[bill@localhost bill]$ gtali --version
Gnome gtali

This appears to be a somewhat corrupted file.  I'm not sure how it got this way
(I cannot reproduce it.)  In addition, in the future we're moving to a GConf
based config scheme for GNOME, and that will hopefully avoid these problems.
