Steps to reproduce:

1. Open gedit and display File Browser (side panel)
2. Open a structure folder with some folders and files (i suggest you /home/), and expand some folder till you see some files, like
-- /afolder/
-- /afolder/
3. click "refresh view" button
4. the structure should collapse automaticaly. if not, try to refresh again untill it does. (probally gedit will crash)
5. when the folder collapse, expand it again.
6. repeat steps 3 to 5 till gedit crashes.

Many thanks for the bug report and the detailed instructions how to reproduce it -- the issue still persists on Ubuntu Precise. The crash has already been reported as bug #809609, I'm therefore marking this bug as a duplicate. I added your instructions to that bug.
Please continue to report any other bugs you may find.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. However, your crash report is either missing or challenging to deal with as a ".crash" file. Please follow these instructions to have apport report a new bug about your crash that can be dealt with by the automatic retracer.

If you are running the Ubuntu Stable Release you might need to enable apport in /etc/default/apport and restart.

Now open your file manager, navigate to your /var/crash directory and open the crash report you wish to submit.
If this fails you will have to open a terminal and file your report with 'ubuntu-bug /var/crash/_my_crash_report.crash' where _my_crash_report.crash is the crash you would like to report. If you get an error that you aren't allowed to access this report you will have to file it with 'sudo ubuntu-bug /var/crash/_my_crash_report.crash'.

I'm closing this bug report since the process outlined above will automatically open a new bug report which can then dealt with more efficiently. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
