so, no bt, just the error message:

please, see

... and seriously, i would have never thought that a crash in the style manager would go to the story editor / text frames.

Oops, misread, i thought the crash was occuring in story editor.

and the crash when running in gdb was a bad crash!

first it freezed everything but the cursor.

after killing gdb from a console (not an xterm... i could not get there...), i could not get the mouse to work correctly scribus (and i think other contexts too... but not everywhere)... even after restarting scribus.
i rebooted to fix it...

I tried to reproduce on Windows, was unable to.

if only i could provide a backtrace...

it might even depend on one of the fonts installed (for the preview)...
