Avogadro Segfaults when using Crystal View Option

Hi,

I am using Avogadro 1.2 . I built a cif file built from ASE (atomic simulation environment) and wanted to check out the the crystal along different axes.

When i went to change the orientation of the camera, it segfault-ed immediately. I am not aware of what could be causing this. When i used a cif file from the Crystallography open database, this was not a problem; however, the program did not generate the bonds which should have been inferred from the symmetry of the structure. (only the the bonds in the primitive part of the cell were present)

I found that using ASE generated the bonds correctly, but did not allow the orientation to change by using the crystal view pane, any of the buttons on which crashed the program.

If you can post a link to the file, that would be helpful. Additionally, for support questions, it helps to know what OS you’re using, etc.
