Hm, it works without crash for me here. Could you add a sample dataset and a description which features you select exactly for merging?
From the backtrace, it seems there is an error writing to the dbf file. So I wonder if there is a problem related to the dbf file, e.g. file permission. Please also report your GDAL version.
