Yes, this happens on my system as well. The code for the new general 
ledger is written by Robert Fewell, the progress is tracked in bug 
673193 [1]. I reported some other crashes due to this code, but I wasn't 
aware this also happened outside the new register. I'll add you findings 
to the bug report. Thanks for bringing it up.

No, on my system the splash screen always disappears when the main 
window appears. That is, the main window appears on top of the splash 
screen. And when I hide the main window, the splash screen is gone. I 
don't know if this is because it picked up the mouseclick to hide the 
main window or whether it really closed normally by itself.
