Summary0015512: Moving control points when editing shape crashes Scribus
DescriptionMoving the control points when editing a shape, and then doing a mouse right-click will crash the program. I tried this in both 1.5.4 and 1.5.4.svn.
Steps To Reproduce1. Load the attached carte.sla file (it contains an SVG and an image frame. The image is not part of it, but is not needed to reproduce the bug)
2. Select the picture frame on the bottom most layer
3. Click 'Shape > Edit' in the object properties.
4. Select 'edit control points' (I could crash it with both independently and symmetrically)
5. Select a control point with left-mouse, move it and while moving it right click.

It will print an issue of a png not found (the cursor I guess from the name), not sure it's related though. Also it tried to get this from the 1.5.1 directory in the resources.
Additional Informationthis is the 1.5.4.svn stack-trace: (In the 1.5.4 it seems to be in the finishTransaction2() method)

Reading symbols from scribus-trunk...(no debugging symbols found)...done.

Installed 1.5.5svn on Ubuntu 18.04.1 and I still get the crashes (I just lost some time in increments of 5 minutes, my rough save frequency).
Everytime I click the right mouse button (I usually do it inadvertently).

My version:
Scribus Version 1.5.5.svn
07 November 2018
Build ID: C--T-F-C1.15.10-64bit

How? By building yourself? From a PPA?
If I look at the builds available at , they are too old. You need at least svn revision r22791 to get the fix for your issue.

looking at the build date, scribus-trunk seems to be up to date...
