Short description of error
Blender crashes when "doing stuff" in the Compositor. Sadly I can't describe it much better and I also can't attach a repro blend file (which would basically be empty anyway) because Blender crashes during saving as soon as I have a Compositor node tree in the scene.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Open Blender and switch to "Compositing" layout
- Click on "Use Nodes"
- SHIFT + CTRL click on the "Render Layers" node to add a Viewer.
- Click on the "Composite" node and click X to delete it
- Blender crashes / closes
There are many other ways to crash Blender while clicking in the Compositor but this is one that works 100%
The current build from the Build Bot is fine so the bug must've crept in lately.
