Short description of error
Blender crashes when minimized to tray and then restored (basically when restored stops responding). Huge nuisance if I forgot not to minimize and switch between windows mid-rendering or working.
I've googled the issue and looks like other Radeon users have similar problems (tried on different versions of AMD drivers).

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Breaks on any .blender file. Usually happens on first try. Sometimes doesn't happen if window is restored RIGHT AFTER it's been clicked to minimize. Happens when minimized by both clicking the top-right button or double clicking blender icon in tray.
