Blindly assuming that the popup is somehow related to an exception
thrown, you could try in gdb

catch throw

or if that doesn't work maybe

break __cxa_throw

before executing the failing code path. Enable only immediately before,
as various exceptions can be thrown for legitimate reasons and are
caught as well so you could hit the breakpoint several times without the
context you're actually interested in.
