Re: SegFault when using enum type

      I'm developping with Dia CVS 20020416, and I have a problem when

      I thought before it was a problem when destroying or writing the
file, but it's not, the segfault happens after. Here is the last line
trapped with strace:

open("/home/khorben/.dia/menus/display", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC, 0666)
= -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
--- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) ---

(I wonder why it's trying to open that file?)  I dunno if this is the
cause, but it happens after the destruction. When I save the file, it is
ok, and it happens if I close the diagram's window right after that.

That file is only opened to save the menu accellerators for the
right-button menu when a diagram is closed.  I think it may be unnecessary
even, as they seem to be saved into ~/.dia/menus anyway.

The interesting code after that is 

  open_diagrams = g_list_remove(open_diagrams, dia);

  diagram_tree_remove(diagram_tree(), dia);

most likely it happens in one of these.

Instead of strace, try export DEBUGGER=gdb and get a backtrace (bt) from
