You're right, I can reproduce this crash but only on Mac, not on Windows.
The problem comes from the second entry of the section 'October' (2-4 
October). There is a accented character in the line "... 
(VŠE)),Prague,...", I tried to Delete (not cut) the VŠE characters and 
then I could cut the whole block without a crash. Another go round is to 
use the key Suppr or Delete for the whole section, it doesn't crash for me.

Maybe a problem with the encoding of this character. We'll fix this 
crash as soon as possible.
Thanks for the report.
