Did you ever get this sorted out? I just took a look at the crash dump,
which seems to point to something crashing while an ActiveEventVariable
is evaluating something:

  0x7fcdb6d7f8 M ActiveEventVariable class>value:during: 0x55857eb728: a(n) ActiveEventVariable

I don't know the circumstances in which an ActiveEventVariable would
be involved in handling a focus event, but it makes me wonder if there
is some sort of preference or theme that is active in your image but
not in mine. It's just a guess but maybe this gives a clue.
