This may also sound a little obvious but |
I did bother to log on to the bug reporting
site and entered the bug....but it is still occuring.
In other words I have a password and account number and spent some time
entering the info. So what happened??

This may sound a little obvious, but if you observe a bug, and you
don't report it, it's unlikely it will be fixed (unless a bunch of
people observe the bug and it's already been reported).
Please report bugs you find in Bugzilla (http://bugzilla.gnome.org)
that we can fix them. But first, please do a search to see if your bug
has already been reported or fixed.
What happens is this:
I open a new document and accept the default. I select the rectangular
shape tool. I draw a square in the centre of the canvas...holding
down the shift key to force a square. Then I select a foreground
colour...red...and select the bucket fill tool. I fill the square with
the red colour. I select copy and copy what is there as is. I then
paste. Thats where it crashes.
I don't have this problem, but of course that doesn't mean it's not a
bug. Please report it in Bugzilla. Also, could you say how you're
copying & pasting, and so on.
