Error creating menu

Since this weekend I got a error message when I try to create menus in crossover.
I can install applications but I'm not able to create the start menu entry for the application.

I use Arch Linux as my system, so I'm not sure if there was an update for python, which now creates that error.

I only get this error from crossver:

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/opt/cxoffice/lib/python/", line 217, in main
 File "/opt/cxoffice/lib/python/", line 267, in refresh
 File "/opt/cxoffice/lib/python/", line 251, in query_config
   data = run_cxmenu(('--query', '--bottle', self.bottlename, '--scope', scope), grab_stdout=True)
 File "/opt/cxoffice/lib/python/", line 38, in run_cxmenu
   raise Error(err)

I tried to reinstall crossover and also recreate the bottles but nothing changed.

Since I'm on Arch too, I tried modifying my menu entries and I could do it without any problem.

At this point, I'm curious as to the method you used to install Crossover, was it with the bin file or the AUR?

No I used the bin file from codeweavers. But this night I checked my journal logs and see that there was a seg error.

So it was not arch itself or crossover. There was a memory problem. Nice to find ;)
