Bug Description

Reproducible crash (tested on Ubuntu and Xubuntu) or freezing of application during ISO testing of a live-session.

Application will crash if there is an attempt to close it or scroll through fonts. On one occasion my laptop was rendered unusable when Firefox was launched while trying to report the crash to Launchpad.

After the bug report has been sent gnome-font-viewer will freeze when automatically restarted. No fonts are displayed.
