Bug Description

I was trying to delete a jpg image in Shotwell using the delete key when the program became unresponsive. Shotwell then crashed with this report.

I expected the program to delete the image and continue running.

I do not know if this helps, but previous to this action I was going through a large amount of photos and tagging them.
