Mousepad freezes desktop

When I click on the file menu in Mousepad the desktop instantly freezes, the other items on the menu work as normal. This is on a new install of Debian Stretch. Tried it with the Taskmanager running and it didn't appear to put excessive load on cpu or memory. Any ideas how I could debug this?

Run it from a terminal and report any errors you see.

Re: Mousepad freezes desktop

Sorry I was actually using it from the commandline when it happened, but I missed this line which I got when I
did it on purpose. Another point of interest it very slowly uses more and more memory.

Glib GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref ; assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed.

Thanks for the answer I have got to like Mousepad to use, it is a lot like Gedit was before Gnome set about wrecking it.

Re: Mousepad freezes desktop

Yes this appears to be the same.  A couple of points.
The version is 0.4.0-4  so hardly changed but the dependances list is different(  libc6 (>= 2.4), libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.41.1), libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.24.0), libgtksourceview2.0-0 (>= 2.10.0), libpango-1.0-0 (>= 1.14.0), dconf-gsettings-backend | gsettings-backend) 
The other point which is remarkable as noted in the bug report, the mouser pointer is free to move but nothing can get focus.

I noted the remove and completely reinstall removes and the "Goodies packages" will there be any problems likely with this? I don't mind just leaving it there for now if it is of any use to the developers.
