Ah, ok, thanks for the explanation, I follow you now. Tellico 2.0 had broken 
formatting, so I fixed that and failed to notice that the sorting no longer 
worked. I'll get on that.

Right, that is how you change the sort order. I just can't reproduce the 
crash, so it's tough for me to fix.

Can you generate a backtrace? You need to compille Tellico with -
DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debug in the cmake line. Then run

gdb `which tellico`

After Tellico crashes, at the gdb prompt, type backtrace and email it. That 
should tell me the file and line where the problem is.
