Bug Description

From the duplicate bug #1649011:

"When using the mouse to select multiple files in a GTK3 application via the file chooser, everything works as expected, but if you undrag the lasso, you just made to unselect them, once the last file is unselected, the entire application crashes. It doesn't matter what program it is, if it's GTK3 based, it'll crash. Either gedit, Firefox, etc. I made a video detailing the exact issue to help point you in the right direction:"

I personally reproduced this bug and let apport report it here.
