I don't know the workaround, but someone else sent a ticket to the 
support queue saying that "print script" in the IDE also crashes the 
same way. He is going to submit a bug report for it.

You might see if specifically opening the print queue helps:

open printing
print this card
close printing

I haven't tried it, but it would be worth seeing if that works.
