Thanks craig.  So are you saying all I should need to do is search bugs
for "Signal #6 Story Editor Select" and that should find me them...  I
get nothing.  Droping the criteria to "Story Editor" does return bugs -
but nothing that is immediately obviously mine.

I think what I was trying to say is, is there a log file on my local
machine (I know about bugs.scribus.net) that might actually explain what
Story Editor was doing that generated the Signal #6 Crash - that I could
then report up the line (or - if I have time I can test the same in
1.3.5cvs and see if it will reproduce).  Trouble is as far as I know I
selected text and got a Sig #6 - but I select text all the time in Story
Editor and don't get Sig #6's... so what's the difference??

I just can't see that logging this as a bug on bugs.scribus.net is going
to help you guys find a cause - since I can't really describe the steps
to reproduce!
