Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2008-10-13 07:11:03 EDT
I assume this is a problem in WebKit because when I used it with a current-git WebKit library, it works. Changing component to WebKit.

Sangu, in the meantime you can configure GIMP to use your normal web browser for online documentation in the GIMP preferences: Edit -> Preferences -> Help System -> Help Browser.
Comment 3 Peter Gordon 2008-10-24 15:08:39 EDT
Thanks for the bug report!

I've pushed an updated WebKit snapshot to rawhide this morning (SVN 37790). Does the help browser still crash after updating to this?
