Replying to [comment:3 milenan]:
I can not confirm crash for 1.3 nor trunk 11818.
But something else happens: layers are changing their order when changing visibility, they even jump to the oter group of layers.
Also so called "Files" may jump out of main layer, see attachement.
yes you are right, it does happens, and if I'm not wrong there is already a ticket about it. But don't close this, it may help underline the problem. Just change the title as the original problem your reported has been solved.

I can confirm that "sometimes" (hard to predict) changing the visibility of a layer makes it move up or down in the layer panel (qgis 1.4.0 on Kubuntu 9.10).
I changed the priority from minor to major: the goal of the layer panel is to organize panels into groups to facilitate finding your layers; randomly "jumping" layers prevent the layer panel to reach that goal, especially when you have numerous layers in a project.
