Bad Crash on Attempt to Group Radio Buttons

OK so editing groups was crashing LC on my Mac again today.

I had pasted a grc into a group, could not select it, then closed the stack and LC crashed (reported here bug 20299)

But when I reopened the stack the grc was there on the top layer of the group that I had edited before crashing. so hmm that paste did work.

OK so I begin to suspect the IDE's scripts that are trying to track changes and update the Project Browser (wild guess) and I switch over to the revApplicationOverivew

Ahha! look the graphic has no check mark under the "selectable" column.

Hmm I could not recall a prop called "selectable"   

So go to the dictionary. enter "selectable"  oops… no such property, so what is this column in the revApplicationOverview tracking.. gotta get work done here… turn vis of all objects on, check "selectable" whatever that is.. and now, yes! I can edit the group, select the grc on top layer, send to to back, refresh overview.. yep it's not the bottom object of the group. Save  and no crashes.

in the AP I can toggle the vis and it toggles in the PI for the object, but if I go object type and toggle "selectable" I don't see any change in any prop in the PI… So, what is this "selectable" property?

    A crash log should help us find this relatively quickly if you can’t come up with a good recipe.
