hi ed,

> Scribus ver. (28 December '08), Build ID: C-C-T-F-A,
> Ghostscript ver 8.71
> -- Scribus crashes politely w/ a "Signal 11" dialog box when
> selecting text sometimes -- printing to Epson NX-105 (from preview
> window) produces all black page!
> *NO* proprietary drivers are activated on my machine. Overall the
> system runs like a dream, runs memtest86 overnite OK. Demanding apps
> incl Chocolate-DOOM, GIMP, Stellarium, Eclipse IDE w/ Java & C(++)
> toolchains, run fine. OpenOffice Writer produces the doc I was using
> as my first Scribus project, so I'm confident that my system is
> stable. I'm a Scribus newbie & I haven't yet found this one in any
> discussions that Google found. I haven't found any consistency in
> *when* Scribus crashes except newly selected text. Any ideas?
