I have the same issue (crashes as soon as I press any key on the keyboard. I could use the mouse without any issue) ever since I switched to GnuCash 3.4 (from v2.6.19)

OS: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS
Kernel: 4.15.0-45-generic #48-Ubuntu SMP x86_64 GNU/Linux
GnuCash 3.4
Build ID: 3.4+ (2018-12-30)
gnucash/bionic,now 1:3.4-0+bionic~ppa1 amd64

Tried running it with "gnucash --debug --extra" from command line. But did not find anything interesting in /tmp/gnucash.trace

Found the following in the /var/log/syslog

If I "sudo gnucash" then it runs fine without crashing.

I'm too affected by this bug and a backtrace shows the crash occurs near im-xim.so, which is the X input method. After clearing the environment variable GTK_IM_MODULE (which was set to xim) the crash disappears, although now my keyboard is badly broken since I heavily rely on XCompose to input all sorts of letters.
