Package: slicer
Version: 3.4.0~svn10438-6
Severity: normal


slicer core dumps when I attempt volume rendering. Protocol:

- start slicer
- select 'Volume' module
- load the MNI152_T1_2mm_brain.nii.gz image (as shipped with FSL)
- I see an ERROR message in the console (see output below), but otherwise it
  works fine in the slice based viewing
- i switch to the 'Volume Rendering' module
- select the MNI volume as target
- a new dialog window pops up for a second saying 'preparing -- stand
  by' or similar
- slicer coredumps with the following output
