Hm, it does not crash for me here when repeating the steps.
Could you try to replace line 30 in qgscomposition.sip with the following:

QgsComposition( QgsMapRenderer* mapRenderer /TransferThis/ );

Then please recompile QGIS, repeat your script and report back if it fixed the crash

Hi, I tested your patch but it still crashes. BTW I suspect it's a bug in QT and I found a way to make it work, it seems like QGraphicsScene (from which QgsComposition inherits, needs a QApplication instance, so this line needs to be added before the call to QgsComposition constructor.

app = [[QtGui]].QApplication(sys.argv, [[QtGui]].QApplication.Tty)

I thought having called QgsApplication.initQgis would have been enough to have a QApplication instance.

You can probably close this bug.

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

Indeed you have to construct a QApplication instance prior to doing any drawing. Closing the bug...
