QGIS crashes using SVG marker

When changing the default 'simple marker' of a point layer, setting the 'symbol layer type' to SVG Marker causes QGIS 2.14.3 on Ubuntu 14.04 to hang then crash.
From what I can figure out, the SVG option tries to find a folder containing an SVG from whatever the last path was - in some cases it seems to try and open Inkscape SVG's, but when that option is renamed, it seeks another folder and grabs the first SVG it finds.
In either case, QGIS crashes without any dialogue box.
