I have made a group composed of four mesh objects and a curve object. Two of the objects have array modifiers, one has a mirror modifier. I have tried several times to import it to another file, and Blender crashes every time.
This group was first built as part of a larger file, that I then decided to split up into a set of assets. The group was first created in that larger file. When I tried to append it in a new file, Blender crashed.
Lazily, I decided to simply delete everything in the larger file that wasn't in that group and save it as a separate file, but then when I decided to append the new asset file in something else, Blender crashed again.
I found that there was data for several other groups in the file, so I selected everything, pressed Shift-Ctrl-Alt-G, and deleted the objects from all groups. I saved the file, closed it and reopened it, and set up a new group. Then I tried to append the group again, and Blender crashed.
So I opened a new file, appended the objects for the group, and created a new group for them, and saved that. I tried to append that new file's group to another file, and Blender crashed.
Appending other objects works fine, including ones that also have mirror and array modifiers. I can't see anything wrong with this file. How do I solve this problem?
Blender 2.78c running on Ubuntu Budgie 16.10.
