Bug Description

Similar to bug #680520, but creating new report since that indicates it is corrected.

Inkscape v 0.91 on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

After creating a rectangle or star and rounding the corners, shift-click on either rounding control of the rectangle or the convex control of the star Inkscape may crash. If you first move the cursor over control, then shift and click it works properly. If you shift, then move the cursor over the control and click it consistently crashes.

Bug report was on version 13725 64-bit.
1. Create a rectangle.
2. While still in rectangle tool (or change to node editing tool), drag rounding control down.
3. Move cursor away from the control.
4. Hold down shift key.
5. Move cursor over either rounding control, or close enough for it to turn red.
6. Click and release left mouse button.

Inkscape may crash. I originally said it was consistent. That is not correct. It happens about 50% of the time. It may happen many times in a row, or it may not happen many times in a row, but it tends to average at or above 50%. Contrary to how I first reported it, steps 4 and 5 can be reversed and the result is the same.

I'm getting the exact same crash, and with similar specs. (I have updates on my Windows computer turned off, however. That may or may not effect anything.)

However, I've had it happen when ctrl-clicking or shift-clicking the handles on rectangles when attempting to make the radii equal or when removing rounding.

Could someone test the 32-bit package to confirm the bug only affects the 64-bit version?

The following reports seem to be at least related:
Bug #1522085 "Crash when shift+clicking on arc/segment node (ellipse tool)"
Bug #1530272 "shift click on rounded star crashes"
Bug #1594877 "crashes on shift+click rectangle rounding"

@64-bit Windows users, could you please test an experimental version (based on updated dependencies) available at and report back if it's fixed or not? Thanks!

Using test release r14950, numerous attempts to reproduce the crash were unsuccessful. This release appears to correct the bug.
