Bug report #9560

QGIS Crashes when creating a blank project after using composer

Added by Tim Sutton over 10 years ago. Updated almost 10 years ago.

Assignee:Nyall Dawson
Category:Map Composer/Printing
Affected QGIS version:2.0.1 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:18146


To replicate:

Using QGIS head on OSX

  1. Open QGIS
  2. Blank project
  3. New composer map (default for name)
  4. Close composer
  5. Hit 'new project' icon on toolbar
  6. QGIS Crashes

I don't get any traceback when the crash occurs. I believe the issue relates to map composer because in other circumstances pressing new project does not cause a crash.

Testing against dae8ea66a169db7539a08dc81d2ebe9dab789f37 I can note that it is no longer guaranteed to get the crash. Probably we can put this on the low priority list until it can be repeated deterministicly.

Even when the crash reporter dialog doesn't show up, the crash report should still written to your user logs. Check:


or open Console.app and look under the User Diagnostic Reports section.

I can not reproduce this on Mac OS X 10.9 (haven't tested elsewhere).

Tim, there seems to be an issue with the CadInput plugin, which always crashes the app on quit. If you have that installed, try uninstalling, quitting, then trying to reproduce the issue again.

I think some Qt signal/slot connection for the plugin are not being handled correctly?
