Short description of error
Array Modifier applied to a Cube using Fit Type: Fit Curve, followed by a Curve Modifier, Causes Graphic Card and Blender to stop responding.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps

1- Create Curve.
2- Create Cube.
3- Array Modifier to Cube.
4-Fit Type: Fit Curve. Add Curve
5- Curve Modifier added after Array Modifier in stack to Cube.
6- Curve selected.
7- Looks fine for few seconds, I even had time to save, then orbiting around the object will cause Graphic Card to crash and recover, Blender stops responding.
8- When I open the saved file, same thing happens.
9- Tried this several times just to make sure this is what's causing it.

My Graphic Card never crashed before, neither Blender did except when doing this.

I repeated the steps as reported above and did not experience any problems on my system.

I went back and performed the same test with Blender 2.76 and the with Blender 2.75a

Once again, I experienced no difficulties whatsoever.

My system remained stable and did not crash.
