Backtrace output of application crash

Running keepass 2.33, the application crashes with SIGSEGV when the Super key is pressed (hugely awkward when using xmonad with the modifier key set to Super). See the attached backtrace, produced with debugging symbols for both mono and keepass.

A bug opened on KeePass itself (https://sourceforge.net/p/keepass/bugs/1523/) was closed by the developer stating that it was not keepass code that caused the segfault.

Running Arch Linux, using the xmonad window manager.

I have the very same issue. 
For me, I have running Arch Linux and i3 windows manager. 
I opened a thread in Keepass sourceforge forum https://sourceforge.net/p/keepass/discussion/329221/thread/bd5d3514/#c779 and being told that it is a mono issue. Equally awkward in i3 because of the heavy usage of the Super key...
It is now a long time that this issue manifested itself. Any suggestion?

Not a solution, but I switched to keepassx-http, which works as a drop-in replacement.

Same issue here, also running i3.

While we aim to fix all bugs in mono, WinForms is not a library we actively maintain anymore. On the other hand, we encourage the community to submit fixes for such issues through a pull request on github repository.
