Fatal print bug in Dia 0.97 for windows that causes data loss


First of all, thanks for the new Dia version. It looks much nicer :-)

Unfortunately I just encountered a rather serious bug with Dia 0.97 for Windows :-( While drawing a diagram I suddenly noticed that I no longer can print it, and when I do try to print it Dia freezes and no longer responds to any input. When clicking on the close button ('X') in the upper right corner, Windows tells me Dia doesn't respond and I'm asked if I want to close it. Closing does work, but any changes to the diagram are of course lost.

The drawing is work related, so I can't just submit it as a bug report, so I wonder if one of the developers could recieve it privately.

In order to troubleshoot, I've reduced the diagram a lot and I currently have two versions:

        bugg07.dia              - freezes when I try to print
        bugg07_works.dia        - print works [*]

The difference between bugg07.dia and bugg07_works.dia is that I've removed a single line.

So, is there a developer to whom I could send these files so he can take a look?

Sincere regards,

[*] I do get my printout, although the graphical objects are placed at the very left on the paper even though they are quite a bit to the right on screen.

PS. When I say 'print', I mean export to PDF, but I have verified that I get the same crash in Dia when sending directly to a printer.
