When testing Xubuntu 17.04 I found parole crashed. Reporting the crash through the standard system prompts led me here, i.e. same crash error message.

Reproducible every time:

1) Open Parole
2) Select from menu: Media | Open Location
3) Click on "Clear History"

I would expect dialog to close and parole to stay open but it crashes.
