Description Andreas Rohner 2018-01-14 22:55:27 CET
The spellchecker causes a crash when German umlauts (ö, ä, ü, ...) are typed into the compose dialog. GDB prints the following error message:

Thread 1 "claws-mail" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00007fffe459d976 in hspell_check_word () from /usr/lib/libhspell.so.0

If I disable spellchecking in the settings dialog, everything works fine. I am using Arch Linux.

Here is the enchant version:

$ enchant -v
@(#) International Ispell Version 3.1.20 (but really Enchant 2.1.2)
