There are two more where it crashes for me:
4. Start the TUI, do not open any tree, press Cursor down.
5. Occassionally directly after all downloads where finished.
I've reported number 4 against cwidget at
https://bugs.debian.org/794705 but the backtrace there seems different

I can confirm that.

this one looks like to be in cwidget, too.

This one is probably in aptitude itself. So they're probably different
issue. Keeping them in one bug report for the moment, though, until
someone can pinpoint the cause more precise than me.
