Confirmed, there is a crash. This makes me have some thoughts about these
automatic Textframes. Is there really a need for that Feature? Your're the first
one reporting that Bug, it seems that this Feature is rarely used. Removing it
would make the Code much cleaner.

That's not a Scribus Problem, it's a Problem of Qt and/or Linux.

This is meant to be a visual reminder that there is something new that needs
to be saved. Having a "Save" Button enabled when there is nothing new to save
makes no sense for me.

Bug in 1.1.0, is already fixed for 1.1.1

Good Idea, will include it.

That issue is on the ToDo List, but that is a more complicated thing as you
might think.
