What were you doing when this happened? Converting a pdf?

Is the source file available on the net or can you attach it?

Also, can you try the newest version available at: 
and see if you can duplicate the crash with that version?
Comment 3 cerro6 2010-07-24 12:38:33 EDT
I solved the problem by downloading the file in .LIT
Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2010-07-24 16:29:57 EDT
ok, glad you worked around the bug. 

Should we leave this open and see if it is fixed in a newer version? Or would you prefer we just close it for now?
