Short description of error
crash with generating DataBlockPreviews in the default scene

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
in default startup file [might have to start blender with --factory], goto
File > Data Previews > Refresh DataBlock Previews
should crash

Caused by a broken(freed?) "toggle_brush" pointer on the "SculptDraw" brush.
So you will only get the crash if the "SculptDraw" brush is selected in sculptmode (which I think it is in the default startup scene)
If any other brush is selected, crash wont happen.

this will prevent the crash

@Bastien Montagne (mont29), it is possible that brush->toggle_brush pointer is becoming invalid. For example, you toggle brush then you remove original one. Also, not really sure you really want to go into toggle brush itself in the walker, so leaving it up to you.

I do not see how we can accept an invalid pointer here? It may crash in many other cases I guess? Even worse in default startup, this should be fixed in factory .blend…

And the walker shall return all ID pointers, with no exceptions - otherwise you'll end up with even more 'invalid pointers' like that in the future.

Think this is a good demo of how bad our 'remove ID' code is currently :|

That said, will have a look around to try to understand how toggle_brush can become invalid - and tease Campbell to fix startup file.
