Loading the attached module with TLE data from 24 Oct 2012 space-track causes gpredict to intermittently crash on startup and if it gets past startup it risks crash on any window operation. Using the celestrak tle's appear to work fine.
To briefly describe the module, it contains all the objects from the October 2012 spaceX falcon 9 launch and the ISS. This was generated to answer questions on the gpredict-discussions mailing list. It was also generated in the normal fashion using the gui. Many of these objects have since decayed.
A typical crash message resembles:
(gpredict:16708): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_set: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
(gpredict:16708): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: /build/buildd/glib2.0-2.32.3/./gobject/gtype.c:3121: invalid class pointer `0x956e128'
Other observations include that the grid does not correctly render on the map when it does start. It is missing either a horizontal or vertical. line.
This bug occurs in Ubuntu 12.4 both with the daily ppa build and building directly from source.
