Thank you for your bug report, does it happen every time you use that dialog?

Absolutely! I can still reproduce crash.

Thanks, Ccing David who works on that code.

David: hey, do you have any idea what debug infos would be useful there?

Infinite loop of:

on_control_active_input_update -> active_input_update -> gtk_tree_selection_select_iter -> signal ("changed", on treeview) -> on_input_selection_changed -> gvc_mixer_control_change_input -> gvc_mixer_control_set_default_source -> signal (ACTIVE_INPUT_UPDATE) -> on_control_active_input_update ...

Need to look deeper to figure out where or how the loop should be interrupted though...

This one is not relevant anymore I believe. Feel free to close it, if I may add...
