Lazarus is supposed to detect, if it crashed during the last startup 
while opening the project. And at least in the few cases where I had 
such crashes, the next start of the IDE has always prompt me, if I want 
to open that project, or start with an empty one.

So if the repeated crash happens to you, then you are hitting 2 bugs at 
once. And it would be really good if they could be reported in a 
reproducible manner.

Btw, as a workaround (just thinking about): Move the project to a 
different folder (just to start the IDE). If it can not be found, it can 
not be opened, it can not crash.
=> Of course that does not solve the problem that eventually you do want 
to open the project. But that is also not remedied by the IDE starting 
with no project at all ( -np ).
