Blender Version
Broken: (blender-2.79-c5206e5d2f8-linux-glibc219-x86_64 and blender-2.80-41d1af9a115-linux-glibc219-x86_64)

Short description of error


Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

1 Open the Program
2 Press the ' key in a Spanish keyboard (you can see it in the image mark in red)

3 Press the ' key again
4 Crash

But if I change the keyboard to English, I can't make blender to crash.
All the blender that crashes comes from the build-bot. The one that do not crash is the one that comes in the Ubuntu repositories.
I don't use any file, just open blender as factory settings

Event Timeline

I have tested Blender 2.79b and 2.8 in Windows 10 Spanish with Spanish keyboard and I'm unable to reproduce. I have tested the 3 keys with accent in a Spanish keyboard (' in ? key, ´ in { key and in [ key).

A friend of mine tested this with a Spanish keyboard but in XFCE desktop and blender did not crash, so maybe it is related to GNOME?
When I said that I change the keyboard to English I meant the layout or the distribution, (mapping?) but not actually the real keyboard, it is a Laptop.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) claimed this task.
Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) triaged this task as Confirmed, Medium priority.

Confirmed when pressing accent grave twice on a Belgian keyboard.

It is fix for me in blender-2.80-7f36fb458cb-linux-glibc224-x86_64
Thanks Brecht!
