It seems like we don't have anyone addressing new bugs lately. But when they do, they'll probably ask you for system info, and possible a test file.

could you attach a sample svg file for testing?

Clone on the right, parent on the left -move one of the parent mesh nodes.

yes, this particular bug report is confirmed. I have reproduced the crash.

could you give your bug reports more specific titles, so that they can be distinguished from each other. I count 6 reports with the same name. From a bug triage point of view, it would be reasonable to assume that these are all the same report, in which case one report would get all the attention, and the other five would be ignored. I assume that this is not what you want.

Yes that's a good point on the report names, I had that thought as well. Will try to come up with more specific names.

I have this issue on Inkscape .92 pre5 r15287 under Windows 10 x64 Home Edition

Operating System used, and Inkscape version used is attached inside the .svg file.

To reproduce -

1) Make a simple gradient mesh for testing purpose
2) Clone it
3) Touch and move any nodes/handles
4) Look at the program crash
