dear all,

i have been having some frustrating problems with dia going a bit unstable

It would be nice if you could provide information about the platform
your Dia is running on. First I concluded from your mailer that it is
probably win32, but than ...

for example the file attched opens fine... 
... none of my local Dia versions does open the attached file without
tweakink. (It enters an endless loop in app/grid.c:grid_draw()).

I've tracked it down to the paper.scaling value being "0" in your
file which leads to some division by zero misbehaviour done on the
paper.width and paper.height ...

see app/load_save.c:diagram_data_load around line 360.

Further calculations are done with bogus values for either scaling
or width and height or even both, so the results are almost
unpredictable ...

but copying and pasting out of it
into a new dia window fails.

more to the point, export to eps "appears" to work... but using imagemagicks
convert :
      convert a.eps b.png
fails for the eps file created... something about no image delegate...

The workaround would be to manually correct the scaling value in
your file. But at least I have not yet found where it actually
got the invalid value in the first place so it will probably
break again ....
