[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#656359: fontforge: Segfault when pressing modifier/arrow keys if more than 4 points are selected

Package: fontforge
Version: 0.0.20110222-6
Severity: grave

Fontforge consistently crashes (segmentation fault) when pressing any
modifier key (Ctrl, Alt or Shift) or arrow key if more than 4 points are
currently selected. This is annoying for font editing, as all keyboard
shortcuts become virtually crippled. And the crash can cause the loss of
unsaved data.

Steps to reproduce:
- Start fontforge and create a new font.
- Randomly choose a first glyph to edit.
- Draw splines with at least 5 points.
- Select up to 4 points and press a modifier or arrow key. It won't crash.
- Select at least 5 points and press a modifier or arrow key. It will
  always crash.
