This is probably a bug in qtcurve.

Does it happen when you run it with the stock theme?
Comment by Marcus Behrendt (mareex) - Friday, 30 January 2015, 16:02 GMT
Yes even with with the default qtcurve theme. The crash happens in a time between 5 seconds and 1 minute - even then when I don't interact with inkscape.
Everything is stable when I use 'oxygen-gtk'.

Once a few weeks ago I had a problem with qtcurve in an older version of Eclipse. It did segfault when I tried to start Eclipse.

As Jan pointed out before, maybe qtcurve is a bit buggy.

Well:
Inkscape have memory leak under QtCurve theme:

[tomasz@arch ~]$ inkscape

Emergency save activated!
Emergency save completed. Inkscape will close now.
If you can reproduce this crash, please file a bug at www.inkscape.org
with a detailed description of the steps leading to the crash, so we can fix it.
Terminated

I'm using KZukitwo theme.

But when I select GTK Theme instead QtCurve Inkscape app working fine. IMO QtCurve regression.

Already reported upstream: https://github.com/QtCurve/qtcurve-gtk2/issues/3

@mareex @FadeMind

Please try this patched builds:

http://pkgbuild.com/~speps/pkgs/qtcurve/qtcurve-gtk2-1.8.18-3-i686.pkg.tar.xz (i686)
http://pkgbuild.com/~speps/pkgs/qtcurve/qtcurve-gtk2-1.8.18-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz (x86_64)

I added a null pointer check into the code at some point, this seems to work for me.
Let me know.

@speps
Patched version working like a charm without issues.
Comment by Marcus Behrendt (mareex) - Tuesday, 03 February 2015, 19:38 GMT

Said to be fixed in master, but there has been no release of qtcurve for 14 months.
Comment by Jonas Abrahamsson (JKAbrams) - Monday, 30 March 2015, 21:33 GMT
The qtcurve-git package is not compatible with KF5, could we patch this one with the nullpointer-check-patch (https://gist.github.com/anonymous/8e6e4ea32dabf03cf630) until a new qtcurve is released?
Comment by Götz (goetzc) - Wednesday, 17 June 2015, 16:45 GMT
@speps I can confirm that the patch and your package fixes the crash.

Could this patch be applied until upstream includes it?

"Could this patch be applied until upstream includes it?"

Same request.
