3+4.) I were watching TV using an USB receiver (Anysee E30 Plus, DVB-T).
I added an icon to the toolbar (infobutton, I were looking for a button for Program Guide, couldn't find any)
Clicked on the Info button, closed the window that popped up and then went to the menus, crash.
During all this the TV-stream were running and i had the Program Guide window open.

That's it.
