I have a crash problem. I add a vector layer (45 megs SHP) and then I click on Vecteur > Gestion de données > Séparer une couche vectorielle ; then i click to select a folder, and when I'm done selecting, qgis freezes. Note that the computation hasn't begun and I can't make it start at all. I tried with a different window manager and it's the same. I tried because the freeze also makes the wm use a lot of CPU (40 %, sometimes less).

That's while using QGIS 1.8.0 deb package (sources.list « deb http://qgis.org/debian precise main »). The distro has Qt 4.8.1 ; the package was compiled for Qt 4.8.1.

xtrace on qgis doesn't show anything while the wm is made busy by qgis (why ?). I tried gdb, but I'd need more knowledge to figure out the threads & event queues... the backtraces didn't look obvious to me.

I forgot to check « causes crash » of course, but I don't see how I can change it now.

This tool has been fixed in the past, also in 1.8. So you must test qgis master or attach a sample dataset to allow test locally. Thanks!

Indeed, I just downloaded 1.9.0 by GIT and it works.

The "ftools" category is being removed from the tracker, changing the category of this ticket to "Processing/QGIS" to not leave the category orphaned.
