After terminating MM5 after it has crashed with this issue, there seems to be a lingering issue which makes MM5 look very laggy when it is restarted. Art acquisition from the cache is very very slow.
nb. at the beginning it looked like I have lost all my art.
It looks like a instance of MediaMonkeyEngine.exe is left running from the instance which crashed.
If I run the crash test twice, I get two invocations of the Engine left running.
This may not be related to the crash, but it certainly looks like it is.

Everything is OK after I crash off the thing that is left running.

I can confirm the crash, seems an issue introduced recently (as 2503 works fine) while it crashes on curent sources.

Is this the same issue?
Presents differently to the issue I reported earlier, but happens when trying to save a custom View
