The file opens for me using both the default System encoding and UTF8.

Once you choose some other encoding, you can't get System back again. I 
don't know if this has been a bug since QgsEncodingFileDialog was 
created or a Qt3 to 4 adjustment that was never made. I will update 

Meanwhile, you can delete the UI.encoding property in 
org.qgis.qgis.plist to get the default System encoding back. Using the 
System encoding might bypass the second call to 
QgsOgrProvider::loadFields() which causes your crash.
