"Delete" node causes a crash. Ubuntu 64-bit

I have had Nodebox crash on me repeatedly when trying to follow the "animation" tutorial. It always happens when I create a "delete" node (where the tutorial indicates "In order to remove the parts without overlap..."). I can choose to ignore the error, but it inevitably is thrown again and I can't use the "delete" node.

The message provided on the most recent crash is pasted below. I am running Ubuntu Studio 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) 64-bit. Can anyone help with this?

    Weird. Is it only the delete node? Is it connected already? Do you have to render it for this message to appear?
