Short description of error
Blender crashes when trying to set an attribute name via the search function

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Open the attached blend file.

  1. Click the "A" attribute input of the math node as shown here:
  2. Select the "tmp_x" attribute from the search list
  3. Blender crashes in the attribute_search_exec_fn function.

I don't know how it got into this state, but the error is very repeatable. Closing and reopening the blend file does not help. Removing the nodes and adding them "fresh" from the menu does not help. It crashes with various different attribute names and different input sockets.

Event Timeline

The problem appears to be related to the "Viewer Node" mode of the spreadsheet editor. When i set it back to "Evaluated" the attribute search works correctly.
On cursory inspection it looks like geometry nodes destroys the search data during cleanup after execution.

I can confirm the crash. Introduced somewhere between rB4eeec6e9b540 - rB62d9dabc7db4.

Edit: I forget to bisect will do that now

Hi @Lukas Toenne (lukastoenne), also crash happens with any random events, not just with the mentioned attribute name and input box :)

[I will mark this as a high priority]
