Import an .obj. Try viewing object in rendered mode and program crashes.
Took a saved .obj with simple data (diffuse and specular values only) and opened it in Blender With Cycles render selected, checked node editor. 18 nodes set up (for what should only be, at most, 3 nodes). Select method of display as 'rendered view', program crashes.
