[scribus] Signal #6

What does Signal #6 refer to.  I am doing my first real job with 1.4.0 RC1
and I've had the system error out with that code twice in the last twenty
minutes.  I am very unaccustomed to seeing errors with 1.3.9 or 1.3.9, both
of which i used for my last issue.

As I have realized that what one was doing when one gets an error may be
important, I can say that I was using the in-frame editing feature, had a
line highlighted and was attempting to set the font size in the PP when the
error occurred.  The first time, I was doing in-frame editing and trying to
set line-spacing in the PP when the error occurred.

The common thing seems to me to be that I was doing in-frame editing.  I
think I'll return to the Story Editor.

Another question:  Is there a way to recover what one has done when this
error occurs?  And please don't say you should have saved more often.  That
is such a cop out when bad software is the real reason.  That is exactly why
I use database programs instead of spreadsheets for data table records.
Software is NOT supposed to act this way.  As a programmer myself, I would
find this totally unacceptable operation.
