Description

Using both 2.18.0 and 2.14.8, the georeferencer tool struggles with files over a few mb. After entering a GCP and pressing okay, an error message comes up saying qgis has stopped working, and the program closes. Reducing file size appears to solve problem.

Still a problem with the latest nightly release. What's the way forward? Crashing most commonly occurs when using the scroll wheel to zoom in and out on a image.

It works everything just fine on qgis 2.18.2 on both Linux and Windows.

Please try a clean install by disabling/removing any 3rd party plugins and/or purging the .qgis2 folder.

Please reopen if necessary.
