qgis crash on delete of rectangle in composer

So far this is repeatable on two out of two tries. In composer (2.4.0) I have a map with many objects - maybe 30 rectangles, 6 maps, 6 svg images. Since the layering of objects in composer is pretty complex and not easily navigable, in order to select the rectangle I want to delete, I have to do Ctrl-Alt-[ until it is selected. Then I hit Delete on the keyboard and qgis immediately crashes ('qgis-bin.exe has stopped working'). On this last crash, Windows saved the dump files (attached - sorry the .dmp files are too big to attach - ftp avail on request).

Interesting question, it references a lot of layers that are external to the project directory, is there a quick way to package up the project with everything referenced by it (>>5MB), to send as a test case? Or should I just send it with the broken references (3.8MB)?

here it is, thanks for taking a look. I'm curious if just the project file alone would be enough since that's where the composer objects reside? Anyway the object in question is a small solid white rectangle with no border; it's on the top outside edge of the big map and extends beyond the border markings of the big map; it's at:
(The shape in question was meant to mask things out, but, this did not work since the big map and its border markings can't be separated into two different layers as far as I know.)
Is there a smarter way to select it? I just use the select tool and click in the region then have to hit ctrl-alt-[ about 20 times to get it selected.
