1. regedit
2. HKEY_USERS\\S-1-5-21-[many numbers here]-1000\\Software\\QuantumGIS\\QGIS\\UI
3. recentProjections - add user code, for example 100010
4. recentProjectionsAuthId - add the same user code, USER:100010
5. Run QGIS
6. Try to change CRS in Settings\\Project properties -> QGIS will crash.

This happens a lot, when user uninstalls QGIS where he had custom CRSes, but registry doesn't get cleared appropriately and refs for these codes remain.

QGIS should not trip over those codes if it founds them, just skip them.
