I found out, this has actually nothing to do with the Reset Layout button.
If a Search Dialog is open, the events for selecting a region in the date
bar are not filtered, and the DateBar::MouseHandler is called from a NULL
pointer somewhere:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Adding a QEvent::MouseMove to the eventFilter fixed this, but I'm not
quite sure if this is the right way to fix it. As Jesper commented in
AnnotationDialog.cpp an allow-list would be much better. Anyway, here is
the patch that fixes this crash for now:
