Can someone reproduce this kate/kwrite crash?

I'm getting a lots of crashes with Kate (and Kwrite). I was able to reduce the offending text that causes the crash to this:

(*Without* the quotes.)

" ;"

That is, one or more spaces, followed by a semicolon. Can someone try and reproduce this? To trigger it, create a new file:

  kwrite test.txt

Then, in the menu select "Tools->Indentation->C Style". And then place the text caret at the end of the line (right of the semicolon) and press enter to insert a new line. For me, this will crash Kate/Kwrite 100% of the time.

KWrite Version 17.08.1
Kate Version 17.08.1
