There's a bug for this earlier for this. But by right it should be fixed in 4.1.2. Please try to use normal standalone installation and see if this issue occurred there instead of installer.

Hi Zhang,
During the crash you are recieving a segmentation fault correct? If so, I have come across this as well and it is a fault in the way curves are calculated by the JVM (as far as I can tell). In the terminal that Confluence is started in you see an error similar to the following yes? If so it is indeed the same issue.

I have yet to find a bug report with Oracle for the issue and if one is not in place I will be submitting one. With that in mind, the only option currently is to not display the PDF until a patched version of the JVM is released.
