Please show Stellarium's log after crash.

Here is the log. I'm using Windows 8, but the issue also occurred with Windows 7.

Sometimes I catch this bug on old i386 PC with Linux :-/

I noticed that on some computers the indicated markers of exoplanets must still be selected at shutdown of the program to occur the issue. In other cases, even if a marker of exoplanets is selected and deselected during a session, the bug happens. I haven't tested this on Linux yet, only on Windows 7/8.
