Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.2.12-3
Severity: important

xfce4-terminal crashes reproducibly when trying to change preferences.
Steps to reproduce:

- start xfce4-terminal
- open a second tab
- close the second tab
- open preferences, go to "Advanced" -> "Double click" and
  change the word chars

xfce4-terminal prints the following error and then usually crashes:

(xfce4-terminal:24509): Vte-CRITICAL **: vte_terminal_set_word_chars: assertion `VTE_IS_TERMINAL(terminal)' failed

It also crashes for other preference items, e.g. "scroll on output",
color settings etc., but then it usually crashes without any error
message. If one opens and closes a few more tabs then sometimes
there are error messages and no crash.
