Summary0016331: Closed Scribus while trying to open a PDF file and now Scribus no longer works
DescriptionSo I was opening a PDF file and I closed the application while it was still opening that file. After I re-opened Scribus it no longer worked. The load screen would finish and then the application opens. After a small amount of time the app closes and then re-opens. After that I can no longer use the GUI. The tab options do not respond and the red x on the top right corner doesn't respond either. I have to then use the terminal in order to close the application.

I wonder whether this is a QT GUI bug rather than being a scribus bug. The strange part about the screen re-opening is that it looks exactly like the way the screen opens when the computer starts back up after re-boot. Un-installing and re-installing does nothing to fix the problem, so I question whether this is a Scribus source bug and is instead a system/os problem or one of the
dependencies for scribus is now corrupted.

Opening scribus in the terminal outputs no error other than missing App Images which I don't think is causing the problem.
Steps To ReproduceThis bug seems to be permanent, so I wouldn't be able to reproduce the bug unless I used scribus on a different computer and did the same steps of closing while opening a PDF file.
Additional InformationI included a compressed .mp4 file that shows what scribus does when I open it through the terminal.
TagsNo tags attached.

Duplicate of issue 0016295. There is a workaround mentioned in the notes of that issue. Unfortunately what occurs is apparently a crash in Ubuntu's GNOME/GTK components, so something we cannot fix ourselves.
