Crashing with WFS new in QGIS 2.0

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:Yes Copied to github as #:17569


QGIS crashed when identifying or selecting certain features through a WFS connection. This was not an issue in 1.8.

Add in a WFS, for example from the British Geological Survey:

Add in the layer:
UKContShelf BGS 1:1M Seabed Sediments

Open up the attribute table. Selelct feature number 99 and zoom to it, select any other feature, and re-select feature number 99. At this point my QGIS crashes, with the message "Crash dumped". This is not limited to the BGS WFS connection, however this is an open WFS so should be able to be tested by all.

I have attached a project file, which should open up the WFS and zoom to a feature that causes the crash.

Of note, if all of the features are selected (or a large number) then it does not, also the feature can be selected from the attribute table.

I would be happy to provide further information.

does not happen on qgis master on Linux. Would you my test qgis master with the osgeo4w installer? thanks.

Thanks Giovanni,

I tried it on Master and got the same issue, but then tried it on another Win7 PC running 2.0.1 and could not re-create.

Need a fresh install it seems. I upgraded using the osgeo4w from 1.8, which may be the issue.

Sorry about that,
