Thank you all for your responses.
Knowing that it has to do with Styled text is a big help, thanks Mark W.
Bob, the crash report is in the bug report.
Mathias, unfortunately I cannot post a sample stack.
I cannot reliably reproduce it myself.

The fields in the one code base,Appli, are heavily styled, and a big
feature depends on it.

I think the bug is at the software intersection of clickLoc, Styled Text
and maybe linkText.
I feel we are a step closer to it  today than yesterday.

Thanks again,
