  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

The crash seems like a Qt bug (QSvgRenderer). See backtrace below.
0c462e87 (SVN r12390) adds a basic workaround, testing only the files ending in '.svg' with QSvgRenderer. Therefore, I'm closing this bug (fixing QSvgRenderer is beyond the scope of the QGIS project).

Debugger backtrace:
