Bug Description

Tried on two different computers with 11.10 (amd64) and 11.04 (amd64). In both cases usb-creator-gtk dies. The following message appears in the syslog:

Oct 16 16:23:16 nogrod kernel: [33461.829713] usb-creator-gtk[31109]: segfault at 4 ip 00007fd7828eb6b0 sp 00007fd7737fc548 error 6 in libdbus-1.so.3.5.7[7fd7
828c7000+42000

Exit status of usb-creator-gtk is 1. md5sum of an iso image is OK.

Installing 11.10 amd64 Ubuntu version on the same pendrive caused no troubles.

i got the same problem on 12.04:

[24881.575486] usb-creator-gtk[19356]: segfault at 4 ip 00007f2240e286e0 sp 00007fffb2848e38 error 6 in libdbus-1.so.3.5.8[7f2240e04000+42000]

only when starting with "gksudo usb-creator-gtk"

it works when i start without sudo, type in the password when it is requested. but when i wait too long on bootloader installation, it fails.

when will there be a fix for this issue?

thanks!

This has been happening as long as I can remember, going back many versions of Ubuntu. It is still happening today for me on 13.10 AMD64:

If a fix is unavailable, a usable workaround would be nice.
