account selection box causes abrupt logout

Editing a duplicate transaction in a GnuCash chequing account register
by changing the account split causes the program to crash, with loss of
the X session, and a return to the login splash screen. GnuCash 2.24 was
running fine on Ubuntu 8.04 amd64 platform, until a "kitten on the keys"
episode precipitated the first crash. 

Since then, the problem has become consistent within this one account
register as soon as one tries to choose an a new split from the account
scroll list window, raised with a mouse right click.

Can anyone advise whether this is a bug, or is it perhaps a corrupt data
file? GnuCash was reinstalled with new configuration files, but the
problem continues. 

For what it's worth, here are the final 10 lines from /tmp/gnucash.trace
after running GnuCash with the --debug option and crashing the

I can't see anything objectionable in there.
