Sorry for the long delay, but I finally managed to get my hands on a macOS test box. The only way I can trigger a crash is by calling `reset()` more than once in rapid succession. I cannot cause a crash the first time after starting Textadept. If I wait a second or two inbetween calls to `reset()`, I do not get a crash. I suspect this has to do with some asynchronous macOS behind-the-scenes stuff when initially setting a menubar.

Are my findings consistent with yours? Or are you always getting a crash? If so, can you also try the latest nightly build and see if your problem persists?
