The crash seems to be caused by any Braille display key press. The Braille 
shown on the Braille display is "Preferences menu", no actual option is 
being shown.

Which menu item are you on when you press down and brltty crashes?

What if you press up? If that works, what happens if you then press down? 
I'm trying to get at is if it's only down that crashes, and if down crashes 
the time, or if the actual problem is that you're trying to move onto a
specific menu item. Another way to test this, if up works, is to repeatedly
press up till you go through all the items.
