I followed your instructions, on GNU/Linux, and did not get a crash.
It is not clear what that proves; I had to fill in lots of details
which you did not precisely specify, and surely they were not the same
as what you did.  Perhaps one of those details made the difference.

Can you therefore send us a *precise* test case?  If I know I have
typed the exact same thing you did, with the exact same data, then if
it does not crash at least we could try to deduce something from it.

The Bugs section in the Emacs manual explains what sort of
information is needed for a truly precise test case.

    Note: a very recent older version of emacs didn't exhibit this bug.

What version was that?
