  yelp crashed with SIGSEGV in free() when printing a document

Status in yelp package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: yelp

  Yelp crashed after clicking menu "File/Print this document" while being at document "Advanced Topics/Installing Server Applications". Before that I clicked "File/Print this Page" then print to ps file and on Preview only the Title of the page was shown.
  When launching Yelp from command line I always get:
  ** (yelp:27939): CRITICAL **: atk_object_set_name: assertion `name != NULL' failed

  ** (yelp:27939): CRITICAL **: atk_object_set_name: assertion `name !=
  NULL' failed

  (yelp:27939): Yelp-WARNING **: Yelper initialization failed for

  Maybe it has something to do with NAUTILUS which constantly is giving kind of "similar" type of error:
  (nautilus:2161): Eel-CRITICAL **: eel_preferences_get_boolean: assertion `preferences_is_initialized ()' failed

  Forgive me if the two problems are unrelated. I just had to put it on
  table just in case...
