I am seeing assertion failures in
gedit on a fairly fresh install of Precise. This does not happen on every invocation of gedit but only if I
Edit > Preferences. The assertion failure happens upon closing the preferences dialog. Since it relies on GTK, I suppose there is a chance that this is an installation problem. How can I fix this?
(gedit:3634): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_tree_selection_get_selected: assertion `GTK_IS_TREE_SELECTION (selection)' failed
By the way, this assertion failure is seen in
Terminal. If you launch
gedit from the Ubuntu Unity Launcher, you will not see the failure.
