Description

GdalTools plugin crashes QGIS when it is installed, and also prevents QGIS from starting. I am using the trunk version of both QGIS and GDAL on Kubuntu 9.10. If starting QGIS from the console the only message is 'Bus Error'.

I've been poking around the python code and think I have narrowed it down to the line
self.translator.load( self.localePath )
in the init function. When this line and the following line (QCoreApplication.installTranslator( self.translator ) are commented out everything works just fine.

If I write out the contents of self.localePath in a message box it has the value
/home/roland/.qgis/python/plugins/GdalTools/i18n/GdalTools_en_AU.qm
This directory exists, but the file does not. There are two qm files present; GdalTools_ru_RU.qm and GdalTools_uk_UA.qm

In the Locale settings dialog box the Override System locale box is not checked and the additional information list my locale as en_AU.

You're using the experimental version of the GdalTools-plugin, isn't it?
Experimental plugins may have some problems and QGis doesn't recommend installing these unless for testing.
If you purpose is not testing, you should disable experimental ones from the Python Plugin Installer.

By the way, I opened a New Ticket on the GdalTools plugin trac and I'm closing this ticket.
