Short description of error
Blender crashes after using scikit-image and returns this error message:

QH6248 qh_lib_check: Incorrect qhull library called.  Caller uses reentrant Qhull while library is non-reentrant
QH6249 qh_lib_check: Incorrect qhull library called.  Size of qhT for caller is 8184, but for library is 2896.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Installing scikit-image to python by sudo pip3 install scikit-image
  2. Running blender -b --python-console or within the interactive console in Blender
  3. Type in console: from skimage import measure and this produced the previous qhull error.

Note: This error occurs only when running skimage within Blender and not with Python alone. The same error occurs for from scipy import spatial when having scipy installed to Python
