I can confirm this on Mac. However, it doesn't happen when labeling is
turned on, but when symbol levels are set (and labeling is on). Symbol
levels and labels work individually, but if either is turned on when the
other is on the error occurs and force quitting becomes the only option.

I get the following (note it is being on-the-fly transformed to UTM here):

Debug: src/core/qgspallabeling.cpp: 1305: (registerFeature) Ignoring
feature 1893 due PAL exception: Geometry Type is unknown
Debug: src/core/qgscoordinatetransform.cpp: 623: (transformCoords)
Projection failed emitting invalid transform signal: forward transform of
(25075.946436, 81366.459079)
PROJ.4: +proj=longlat +datum=WGS84 +no_defs +to +proj=utm +zone=13
+datum=WGS84 +units=m +no_defs
Error: latitude or longitude exceeded limits

I've traced it to line 1057 in qgspallabeling.cpp [0]. Just guessing, but
it looks like something is different between how the features are sent to
QgsPalLayerSettings::registerFeature from
QgsVectorLayer::drawRendererV2Levels as opposed to
QgsVectorLayer::drawRendererV2, which works fine.

Please create a ticket if you have the time.
