Thanks for your reply.  Unfortunately, with my latest CVS
download I now get a crash ("Segmentation fault") when I try to
open or create a (New) document.

To test if the crash was caused by building against different
-dev libraries, I recompiled my CVS downloads of 20031105 and
20031117[*].  These two versions don't crash when opening or
creating documents.  Both however also exhibit the bug (crashing
when editing a custom template) I described in my original post.

20031105 cvs:  crash when editing "custom" template
20031117 cvs:  crash when editing custom template [*]
20331118 cvs:  crash when opening or creating documents

[*] The first entry of 20031117 cvs reads:
16.11.2003	Improved the Story Editor.
		Fixed some issues with Copy and Paste.

PS I think the Story Editor is a killer feature.
