also on Toshiba e-studio 281c and HP LaserJet 4050. I'm guessing this isn't printer specific/related

The attached patch solves the reported crash, but the whole problem is not solved by it. In addition, bug 633913 needs to get fixed.

Closing manually as LP's auto-closing is broken.

I have reviewed and tested the new release (0.20+bzr112-0ubuntu1) and it fixes the reported problem. Michael, thank you for the quick fix.
