Bad Crash on Attempt to Group Radio Buttons

All crashes are bugs and need reporting. It sounds like in this case you 
had individual objects selected and tried to edit those as you would a 
group. The engine couldn't handle it. I've not had a crash if a group 
itself is selected when I choose "edit group".

To create a group inside another one, edit the "outside" group and then 
create the inner group.
