I can not reproduce this on linux either.

@William Reynish (billreynish) can you reproduce this on mac?

Well, yes, kindof. I get lots of crashes when entering and exiting full screen mode, but mostly on my 5k display. I wonder if there's some kind of GPU memory issue that happens when using the full screen toggle

Ok, then this seems to be a general mac problem (or perhaps high dpi display problems).

Yes, it could be. When you enter/exit full screen, a screenshot is taken of the window, which is then dynamically resized until the window reaches the destination size. The OpenGL context is also updated in some way.

It seems likely that the crash happens because of this rather than anything specific to do with grease pencil as such.
