It happens, when you not use the cancel or OK button on the bottom, but when 
you use the X in the top right corner of the window.

Further I noticed the following messages showing up from libobjc2 with debug 
when opening and closing the preferences:
Calling [NSApplication -beginModalSessionForWindow:] with incorrect signature.  
Method has address@hidden@0:address@hidden, selector has 
address@hidden:address@hidden
Calling [NSApplication -endModalSession:] with incorrect signature.  Method has 
address@hidden:address@hidden, selector has address@hidden:4^{_NSModalSession=}8

The OK and Cancel buttons don't trigger the segfault.
