Kate crashes when trying to save the session.  The updated session is not saved.  That is, when you restart kate, the Symbol Viewer plugin is not active.

Per upstream report this is a known
issue and has been corrected in 4.1.  Thanks for the report.

Comment 2 Ian Laurie 2008-06-23 00:58:45 UTC
Will the fix be released as a fedora 9 update?

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-23 01:01:21 UTC
The plan is to release 4.1 as a F9 update once it's released, maybe we'll push 
a backported fix sooner.

Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-23 05:12:39 UTC
What bugs me is that that fix is 4 months old and was never backported to 4.0, 
somehow the upstream process is broken there. :-/

Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-23 05:15:26 UTC
Backporting fix.
