I may have seen something similar, but can't replicate now on QGIS master, so... please test qgis master and also attach here sample data (and exact steps) to allow try replicate the issue.

There is no need for a file as it crashes before you can open any dialog.

However, I noticed that there are two "Add Delimited Text Layer" menu entries. One is from the plugin one is for the built in feature. This report it is for the plugin. The built in one works. Sorry for the confusion.

I don't know how to assign it to a plugin.

I attached a screen shot showing the menu with 2 similar entries. The one on the bottom crashes qgis.

The plugin cannot be uninstalled, so I am confused now. Is it the plugin that provides the CSV layer feature, but there is a problem with the menu? Is the bottom menu item linked to something that crashes Qgis?

I am not able to see the plugin you mention, did you do a clean install or an upgrade? I think it may be the plugin left from a previous version

Your plugin is pretty old. It was moved to core last may. The plugin tab in the message log window should show where the plugin is loaded from. Check if you have a leftover (lib)delimitedtextplugin.(so/dll) anywhere and remove it.
