Summary0008969: Crash When Pasting into Story Editor
DescriptionI'm experiencing Scribus crashing with this message: "Scribus crashes due to Signal 0000011 Segmentation fault"

I've experienced this crash before with random amounts of text (not sure if it was always the same font)

Today, I isolated the problem and am able to always reproduce it in the attached file.
Steps To Reproduce1) Install the font attached and open the Scribus file.

2) There are six products on that one page. I can always reproduce the crash with the product 0000004 named "Mepiform® Self-Adherent Scar Care Dressing".

3) The crash is reproduced with the *description* of that product that right now starts with "Hypergel® effectively debrides...."

4) Open the attached "text-to-paste" file and do "Select all" and copy into the clipboard. The crash actually happens when pasting the very first line in that file, which I assume is a new-line character.

5) select the text frame with product's description, as mentioned above, and press CTRL+T to bring up story editor.

6) Press CTRL+V to paste the text that we have copied.

7) Crash occurs.
TagsNo tags attached.

Topical silicone has empirically been shown to have positive impact on hypertrophic scars and keloids. It may take from 3 months up to a year or more to improve an old scar, depending on the condition of the scar tissue. Mepiform shall optimally be worn 24 hours a day. It is recommended that Mepiform is removed once a day, e.g. when showering or bathing, for inspection and washing of the skin. For prophylactic treatment, Mepiform shall be used for 2-6 months depending on the condition of the scar.

Umm.. didn't expect Mantis to parse the numbers like this, as bug report numbers..

The signal number is eleven. And the product is number four. It's in the middle row on the right.
