Bug Description

The bug is known by the author and there is a solution. Probably somebody can update the package? Seems easy enough but I don't know how to do it. It doesn't look like there will be a new version anytime soon.

-->I found this on ubuntuforums.org (http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1239078.html from 2009):

I just got mail from Jérôme, the author, and he is aware of this bug. Will be fixed in next, 2.1.7 version. However, he told me that there is a temporary fix for 2.1.6. All you have to do is change the line 3330 in file "misc.c". Change:
g_free(currentPath); to this:
and then compile. With this correction, Load filenames from .txt file feature works fine.

Thanks for help

I compiled successfully from source and changing that line helped to avoid the crash. I am on Oneiric AMD64.

Can someone please upload a .deb package or something ready to install?
I tried tow times to compile, but first there was GLIB 2.8.0 missing, after install GLIB 2.8.0 there was GTK+ 2.12.0 missing, after install GTK+ 2.12.0 my computer was nearly destroyed. Nautilus is not starting anymore, its not possible to shut down or enter the Console with STRG+ALT+F2. Its the second time that this happens to me, and I need to reinstall Ubuntu to resolve this error :(
