Description of problem:
Dia crashes with a segfault when the menu is used to select the text tool (but
not when the text tool is selected from the palette).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Gnome dia 0.88.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open dia, create a new diagram
2. Right-click on diagram to get menu
3. Select Tools > Text
Actual Results: Dialog box saying that dia crashed due to a segfault
Expected Results: I should have gotten a text tool
We should probably grab a new version of dia and see if it's fixed.
Just about everything in the Tools Menu of Dia 0.88 caused a crash.
RedHat 8 seems to ship with Dia 0.90
(i am not my own sysadmin on this network i am using today)
Dia 0.90 is way way behind Dia CVS which has been ported to Gnome 2 but
unfortunately Dia developement is not quite well organised enought to make more
regular releases. Passing of any patches back upstream would be of massive help.
I am sure help stablising Dia for releases would be appreciated by the
developers. There are also additional shapesets in CVS that have been added
The Dia in RH8.0 does not have this problem, and you should be able to use that
in 7.3 too.
It's unfortunate that dia for gnome 2 isn't in a releaseable state yet...
