- open python console
- start writing a line so that the auto completion menu opens
- without choosing any entry undock the python console (the auto completion menu is still open)
- left click into the console leads QGIS to crash.

Does not seem to be an easy fix.
I think it boils down to this upstream bug report:
Removing `Qt::WA_StaticContents` should resolve the crash, but as far as I can see, this flag is set internally by QScintilla we don't actually use it a lot in QGIS.
The upstream report mentions that "the crash is no longer reproducible" without more details, so we can only assume that it has been resolve in Qt in some release of the 5-series...
