Last night I installed version 2.18.8 onto ubuntu 16.04 (via automatic upgrade).  This seems to have killed the delimited text provider.

Symptoms are:
    Open delimited text dialog
    Select simple .csv file with lat and lon fields
    Click OK
     ... QGIS dies immediately

Normal behaviour would be to open CRS selection dialog and then display the layer.

Note that existing projects with delimited text layers load properly and display the layer, so this is an issue with creating the layer, not displaying it.

I have tried removing and reinstalling QGIS and all its dependencies and the issue is persisting.

I'm installing from the http://qgis.org/debian repository

This was working without issue on 2.18.7.
