first the bug: dia ends with a segmentation fault when I try to align
some objects. This is the CVS-source of the 09.03.02 compiled with
unicode and freetype enabled.
Is there a bug-tracking system for dia?

This only happens when I start dia with ./app/run_dia.sh from the
source tree to test it, it went away after installation. But I would
suggest anyway to skip the splash screen if the logo is not found.

For this one I followed the advice of Lars and converted the TrueType
fonts to Type1 and it works fine.
