Bug Description

After the legacy canvas was removed from gtk3 builds I deleted the config directory and started from scratch. I opened an existing project. I started pcbnew from the project view. The legacy canvas was opened automatically (white and empty, in a repeated attempt it had a square with black hairlines, like the legacy canvas before it was removed from gtk3 builds). I tried to open Preferences menu. KiCad crashed. This can be repeated. If I close pcbnew and kicad before it crashes and start it again, pcbnew is opened with modern canvas and works as expected.

@John, I set the milestone to 5.1 since this will need to be fixed before the 5.1 release.
