I'm pretty sure this is a regression from the QgsSettings PR (#e1ede700a897c899be8aabf20abe7f953209cb10). When the user tries to delete a saved wms/wmts server via its UI's [ remove ] button, QGIS crashes. This is the gdb's where output:

Thread 1 "qgis" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Steps to reproduce
  1. Launch QGIS
  2. Open the Add WMS layer window
  3. Select a saved server from the combo box
  4. Click on the [ remove ] button, and the [ ok ] button on the follow-up dialog
  5. Notice QGIS dies :)

The fix is trivial but I'm on vacation and away from my dev PC, I'll fix it later this week.
