Yes please. I'm still trying to work out what's going wrong, as I get no such 
bad behaviour.

Is the problem always related to something involving some file(s) as well as a 
separate (dialog) window (e.g. confirm, rename, view) ?

If a new window is involved, precisely when does it crash - before window 
opens, or when it's closing ?

Does it matter how such window is closed - window-title click vs "do it" button 
vs "cancel" button ?

Does it matter how the action is initiated e.g. key-binding vs menu-item vs 
button-click ?

What sort of file-alteration-checking is used - default (periodic polling) or 
inotify etc ?

Building emelFM2 with DEBUG=1 and running via terminal may produce some useful 
message(s), but a debug-build also alters code-optimisation and timing of 
things, the latter of which may well be the ultimate problem. A less-disruptive 
approach is to edit emelfm2.h and uncomment the line (at about 160)
before rebuilding
