Short description of error

Selecting 'Drop Color' from spacebar menu in 3D view causes blender to instantly close. (Not actually sure what 'drop color' actually is, just came across it).

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Press spacebar on keyboard while in 3D view and type 'drop'.
  2. Select 'Drop color' from list.

I confirm the crash.

It makes no sense to access this operator from search.
It is the drop from drag 'n drop.
Drop Color is explicit message shown when you drag 'n drop a color from one color slot to another.

Here's a quick patch:
