gnome-control-center exits with a segmentation fault, when you search for settings panel, and select certain search results. Seems like this is another issue caused by glib2-2.54.3 update

Selecting at least the following search results result in segfault:
-Mouse & Touchpad
-Removable Media
-Wacom Tablet
(i.e. everything in Devices submenu, apart from Printers)

Searching and selecting any other panel apart from the aforementioned seem to work.

Additional info:
Tested with gnome-control-center-3.26.2+14+g5ac6a0da6-1

The issue appeared after update to glib2-2.54.3-1.
After downgrading back to glib2-2.54.2-2, there are no segfaults and everything seems to work.

glib2-2.54.3-2 doesn't fix the issue.
I also tested glib2-2.54.3+2+g94b38beff-1 currently on [testing], but the problem persists.

Here's the forum thread where this issue was reported:

Steps to reproduce:
1. Click the search button on upper left corner.
2. Search for "keyboard"
3. Select "Keyboard" from search results with mouse or keyboard.
4. gnome-control-center exits with no error message other than "Segmentation fault (core dumped)"
This task depends upon

Can't reproduce.

Upon further investigation I found out I can't reproduce this with a newly created user, and I'm yet to figure out what in my old user's configuration is triggering the bug.

EDIT. Double poist, sorry I don't know how that happened.
