Bug report #9831
QGIS crashes when attempting to 'save as...' of a vector layer in different projection
|Affected QGIS version:||2.2.0||Regression?:||No|

QGIS crashes as soon as I try and save an existing vector layer as a shapefile in projection that differs from the original.
A bit of background, I recently recompiled GDAL with MrSID support (using a third party SDK), though this caused problems as it introduced an older version of the Geos library than QGIS was compiled against. I recompiled GDAL again without MrSID support (i.e. reverting back to the way I had it before) though now I am experiencing the problem above.
That said, this is the first time I've attempted to 'save as...' since the upgrade to QGIS 2.2. so am unsure if its a QGIS issue or if I've broken GDAL.
I can replicate the problem when trying to save in a number of different projections. If I 'save as...' using the same project as the original the export works fine and QGIS doesn't crash. One last thing is that the first time it happened a pop-up appeared with a list of libraries that are being used (see attached screenshot).
Any help greatly appreciated.
