Yes.. Here is what i do....
Open abi and maximize the window (although it segfaults even if you havent
maximized it), turn off rulers from the menu, they disapear nicely and then I
click where they were just a second ago (on the grey background that they used to
over lay). Then i start to scroll and it segfaults. a intereesting thing is that
it will do it even if you hit return on the page. You can type some but when it
goes to the next line or you hit return it segfaults. here is the gdb backtrace.

relatively short i think. kinda strange backtrace too. Hope this helps you.
