Mono crashes when attempting to insert unicode accented letter in a text field #17029

I am using Subtitle Edit for Linux, versions 3.5.10 on an up-to-date Archlinux system. The issue initially arose when trying to insert the letter "è" (i.e. " egrave # LATIN SMALL LETTER E WITH GRAVE") with cut and paste from another application. I have later confirmed with other accented letters. Mono crashes with the stack trace attached below.
Direct insertion from the keyboard using a dead/compose key (I have a US keyboard) ignores the accent and results in a simple "e".

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Open Subtitle Edit
  2. Open a subtitle file (.srt)
  3. Paste an accented letter into any subtitle

Current Behavior

Insertion is refused and mono crashes with the attached log

Expected Behavior

Correct character insertion at paste point

I cannot reproduce this with SE 3.5.13 on Ubuntu 16.04 (with mono 4.2.1).
