Changing SX Causing GnuCash to Hang

I have a scheduled SX setup to automatically add a fixed amount of interest 
to a savings accounts at the end of a month.
I changed this SX so that the amount is a variable from this point forward.
However, when I'm trying to close the tab of the "Scheduled Transaction 
Editor" (the "Close Button" is on the tab) GnuCash hangs and I have to kill 
the application.

The only message on the command line is this:
    *** glibc detected *** gnucash: corrupted double-linked list: 
0x43405158 ***

I have tried to change this SX several times on two different systems (one 
running FC5 - svn r16583 on 2007-11-14 and one running FC6 - svn r16372 
2007-07-29) with the same result except that the error message is not 
displayed on the FC6 system.
Choosing a different SX to modify in the same way results in the same problem.

I haven't seen this problem reported before.
Should I report it in Bugzilla?
