Thank you for the bug report. Could you please try version 5.2.20. Thanks in advance.

I have resolved my problem by setting the 'installation type' of my mysql install. I did not notice such a setting before (had been using 5.1). I have set the setting back to the wrong setting but it does not crash anymore.

I had come up with a way to replicate the bug, but I've now tested the new 5.2.20, and tried it with no crashes. It looks like reasonable defaults are added now when creating a new server instance, and that fixes this problem for me.
Thanks

Not repeatable with 5.2.20 it seems.
