This crash is not happening with current CVS pull, sources from 2010-06-25.
Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2010-07-04 15:17:16 EDT

Can you please upgrade to the version in this scratch build:


and see if the problem re-occurs or is fixed?

Note that this build will only be around for a few weeks.

Thanks. That should isolate if it's fixed in that release or we need to wait for the next one.
Comment 4 Paul Flo Williams 2010-07-04 15:50:59 EDT
Fixed in that scratch build, thanks. The cvt window now appears, is populated and is resizable.

(I mention resizing because it appears that this build will also fix bug 572427.)
Comment 5 Paul Flo Williams 2010-08-03 02:33:20 EDT
I think the fact that this is fixed in your scratch build means that this is fixed in Rawhide and can be closed?
Comment 6 Kevin Fenzi 2010-08-03 11:25:29 EDT
Yep. Sounds good to me. :) 

Thanks so much for reporting it.
