Thank you! That corrected both problems I was having in the application! 
Everything appears to be working again!

Please replace the file E5Gui/E5ErrorMessage with the uploaded variant. The issue 
seems to be caused by a bug in openSUSE 42.3 KDE/Qt integration. When a warning 
dialog pops up about some locale/i18n stuff, just select the "Don't show this 
again button" and it will be gone forever. There were similiar issues in the 

Please report back.

Oh, I do see a new line in sysout in the middle of the many lines that match the
following first line:

File "/usr/lib64/python3.4/site-packages/eric6/E5Gui/", line
114 in messageHandler
File "/usr/lib64/python3.4/site-packages/eric6/", line 205 in excepthook

Note that when I attempt to run eric6 now, I get a notice about the previous
crash, and I have to click ignore and delete since I am not able to config the
email information, and then eric6 crashes and closes after I click "No" to the
question of whether I want to restore the crashed session.

Sorry, my mistake, I had recompiled using the old code.  That is taken care of
now, but I still see little difference in sysout.  I am attaching the log file
from ~/.eric6 directory.

There should be a log file in the directory ~/.eric6. This would contain the error 
information. It is strange, that the script fails in exactly the same way. Please 
double check, that the installed script ( is actually the one downloaded 
from this issue.

Thanks for the attempt.  I copied the new module over the previous one, and
reran the to recompile everything, but I see no difference in the
information written to sysout.  All module names and line numbers are the same
as what I sent in the previous eric6.txt file.  Is there something else I can
send that would help you debug this?

The issue is probably a missing xml.sax.saxutils module. This would trigger an 
import error, which calls the excepthook() function and the code runs in circles. 
The attached main script ( get rid of this. That way the issue triggering 
the excepthook() method should become visible.

Just finished installing Eric6-17.08 on openSUSE Leap 42.3 and was going through
the initial startup configurations steps.  When I got to the "Project"
sub-category on the list tree, and clicked on "Multiproject" the application
crashes.  I had similar issues when I was using Eric5 and attempted to add new
files to an existing project.  I have attached the sysout information that
appears when running it from command line as well as the crash report.
