Short description of error
Right-clicking on object/mesh causes Blender to crash.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
With fresh install of Blender 2.77 on Linux machine and Blender factory defaults, selecting an object/mesh by right-click causes Blender to crash. Right-clicking on selected item to make active also causes crash. Further, Box Selection of object/mesh causes a crash, but Circle Selection has no problem.
All work without issue: selection of camera, light, empty, etc.; selection of verts, edges, and faces in Edit Mode; selecting the object in the Outliner.
