It is possible to get these type of "ghost" problems by the build
environment changing. I noted a problem a while back where building
from SVN resulted in a problem in the file dialog that would always
crash eeschema. When I cleaned my build system and started a fresh
(changing from gcc 4.3 back to 3.5) everything again started to work
fine. I think the problem was initially concerned with a wxWidgets
source code update I did.
Build an older SVN and see if the crash persists, you can always try
and narrow it down to a specific SVN revision where the bug was
introduced if that is the case.
