Which country did you select, or does it happen no matter which country?

no, it doesn't matter which country.
in fact, i figured out what caused the crash recently, just had forgotten that I filed this bug (sorry about that).
The problem is that it tries to parse the files that contain the frequencies to scan. The are located in /usr/share/dvb/dvb-c/ (for dvb-c) if I remember correctly.
What I had done was create a file in there that contained the frequencies for my provider (since none of the provided files were right for me) and named it something like 'myfreqs' which didn't follow the correct naming scheme. That is what caused the crash.
gnome-dvb-daemon expects ALL the files in that folder to follow the COUNTRY-CITY naming scheme.
When I selected the country it tried to find all the files that start with that country code ... and crashed.
What it actually should do is check the filename first instead of just trying to parse it an crash.

You're absolutely right, it's fixed now.
