I can't get it to constantly crash in both Windows and Linux under the same circumstances.
Sometimes it crashes in all editors and sometimes not...

After further testing the Linux crash may have been an anomaly.
Though can reproduce 100% of the time with my userpref file.

I'm not sure what I've done to it or if it's worth investigating, but I'll leave it up to the developers.

I couldn't reproduce this issue, but I think I know what may cause it (I still don't know how exactly it gets triggered though).

EDIT: Correction, that was without the userpref.blend
