[QGIS-Developer] The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing

Sorry. I have appreciated since writing this email that you guys could 
not have foreseen how the project properties dialog box crashes because 
no one else reported that as a bug.

There's a paradox (or tension) here: to get the best testing you have to 
be using this software every day to do as many things as possible. That 
creates issues when something breaks in a project file, if it's hard to 
fix easily.

Every time the CRS changed I changed it back but now it crashes when I 
try to do that. The changes in layer styles that don't migrate was small 
compared to being unable to set the correct CRS on a project because the 
CRS gui crashes.
