Short description of error
Changing the resolution on the point density node crashes Blender

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Add a vertex group to the default cube and add some weights.
Add the point density node and set it to Object Vertices, World Space, Vertex Weights and add the Vertex Group.
Connect the density output to your material output or make sure that you can see it.
Make sure, you're in Cycles.

Now reduce the resolution on the slider and Blender will crash

I know that this is just a bug tracker, but a fix for my use case would be to add a vertex weights node similar to the vertex colors node.

Thank you for your time!

vertex weight affects color output (the yellow dot) not the point density output.
Is the crash related to vertex weight?

Please follow our submission template and guidelines, also read these tips about bug reports, and make a complete, valid bug report, with required info, precise description of the issue (only ONE issue per report!), etc.
Also explained here:

Mixing unrelated information will only confuse the developer assigned to the report.

LOL. I feel like an idiot now, I could swear that I've tried out using the Color output.

Anyways, the crashing persists. When you reduce the resolution from the default 100 Blender will crash.
