It happens when the closure is being assigned and not when called, so the problem is not that the captured value would get deallocated and then the closure called. It happens randomly, sometimes it crashes sooner, sometimes later. I was experiencing this bug in earlier versions of Swift (I think it was Swift 1.2), but now I'm using 2.1 and getting this crash too.

However before opening a ticket at bugs.swift.org <http://bugs.swift.org/>, I wanted to get more eyes on this to make sure I'm not missing anything.

Do you have a small test case? Can you file a bug?
