Observed in Android app version 1.0.42 on a HTC One running Android 4.4.2.

Just now, I wanted to edit a question. I tapped on the menu button that opens the Question options menu. That's this one, no tricky stuff here:

the one that says 'Edited: 18 hours ago', or whatever

Then I tap Share instead of Edit by accident. The Question options menu closed, and the Share To... menu opened. However, on my phone at least, there's a small portion of a second in which the Question options menu has totally closed again as if it's been dismissed, but the Share To... menu has not yet opened.

Hurriedly, to correct my mistake, during that less-than-a-second window, I tapped the menu button again (the one circled above). I'm not sure whether I intended to dismiss the Share To... menu, or actually reopen the Question options menu, but that's what I did.

And then the Android app crashed totally, because apparently it doesn't like opening the Question options menu when it's waiting on the Share To... menu.

a horrible horrible crash

Yes, that's my home icons overlaid over the Android app.

The briefer reproduction-steps version:

  1. Tap the menu button circled above.
  2. Tap Share.
  3. Immediately repeat step 1 before the Share To... menu opens.
  4. Observe crash.

    I spent an unhealthy amount of time trying to reproduce this. But I was finally able to reproduce it on a Nexus 5 running Stock 4.4.4. – Steven V Jun 24 '14 at 3:32
  • This no longer occurs with the menu changes in the current version. – doppelgreener Feb 8 '15 at 21:24
