Description of problem:
The Symbol Viewer plugin crashes kate. The crash will happen every time a session is saved in which the plugin is active, or when kate exits if kate is set to save the session on exit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Kate
2. Activate the Symbol Viewer
3. Save the current session
Kate crashes when trying to save the session. The updated session is not saved. That is, when you restart kate, the Symbol Viewer plugin is not active.
It should save the session.
If you save a session with a modified file, the edits are lost due to the crash.
Per upstream report http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=156559 this is a known
issue and has been corrected in 4.1. Thanks for the report.
Will the fix be released as a fedora 9 update?
The plan is to release 4.1 as a F9 update once it's released, maybe we'll push
a backported fix sooner.
What bugs me is that that fix is 4 months old and was never backported to 4.0,
somehow the upstream process is broken there. :-/
Fixed F9 build here: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=675978
kdesdk-4.0.5-3.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
New build works for me. Thank you for the fast resolution to the problem.
And thanks for your fast feedback. The update is heading straight to the stable
kdesdk-4.0.5-3.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
