Short description of error
Crashing yesterday, rarely, not often, when in Wireframe visual mode and in the Layout window. All parts visible.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Show scene, all parts on, tons of parts, wireframe mode active. Select all parts, move view around. Select a single part. Screen silently closes and you are back on Desktop.

Note/Thought: This seems to happen most in Wireframe mode. The complexity of the system trying to figure out what you are clicking on in the stack of meshes must be a daunting task, perhaps, and might be the culprit in crashes. Wireframe might be very heavy on the system.

Event occurred 2X that I remember, so I made note of it.
I am using this for work, so I do not have a lot of time to experiment, but love to help out with reports. Hope I am not a nuisance.

An example .blend file where this happens would help.
Otherwise cannot reproduce with the files I tested here.
