SE crash possible vector

The question then becomes, does the SE populate all the tabs even if they are not showing or are not currently selected? For example, when does the Documentation tab populate? If it does so whenever a dev clicks a command or keyword, regardless whether or not it is visible, then any bug present when visible will be present when not.

That makes debugging difficult but I can point to variables to see the values, though I can't examine arrays very well. I'm still crashing, I just haven't uploaded my current collection of logs yet. I'm not sure LC needs more than 30 logs anyway.
