Bug Description

Binary package hint: openshot

Hi, openshot 1.2.2 crashes if you try to export a project in a directory where you do not have write permission.

I understand it shouldn't work, but crashing (segmentation fault) is a bit too... punitive, no? :-)

A message could be a good think for the user.
