Bug Description

This was marked fixed in , however it still seems to be an issue (or a *very* similar new issue).

I'm guaranteed at once per session to have eeschema crash, usually when typing the first character into the search field within the 'choose symbol' dialog.

I've taken to hitting CMD-S religously as the "work around".

Here's the start of the dump:

My bad, sorry about that.

@dkadrios I would guess the full version info is required. Use "help->about->copy version info" to add this info here.

@Rene, since he on a Mac, the version info is under the "KiCad" menu, not the "Help" menu. (Mac-isms)

I'm going to remove this from 5.1's milestone until/unless we know that the op is running a 5.1rc2 build
