Eric3 segfaulting

I'm brand new to Python - just giving it a try but I'm having trouble with
eric3.  This query isn't exactly about the Python language but it is

I run KDE on linux so I already have Qt installed.  I have installed Python,
SIP, QScintilla, PyQt and eric3.

When I run eric3 the fonts in the editor are way too large, so I selected
preferences to change them but when I hit "OK" I get a segfault whether I
have made a change or not.

So I tried to debug eric3 in eric3 but I'm too new at this to be of any use

I get the following error:
The debugged program raised the exception unhandled KeyError "19"

/home/geoff/eric-3.1/eric/Preferences/, Line: 75

This line is:
 return self.colours[style]

which is the end of function color.

Any help would be appreciated.
