This is a different situation than this question, as the solution provided doesn't work and the stack is different.

Periodical crash when I save data using coredata.

The stack trace isn't 100% clear on where this is happening, but I'm certain it's this routine that's being called. It's either the save: in this method or the one following.

Code:

-(void)saveWine {
    if ([self validInfo]) {
        Wine *wine =  (Wine *)wineToEdit;
        if (wine == nil) {
            wine = (Wine *)[NSEntityDescription insertNewObjectForEntityForName:@"Wine" inManagedObjectContext:self.managedObjectContext];
        }
        wine.uuid = [Utils createUUID];
        wine.name = self.wineNameField.text;
        wine.vineyard = self.vineyardField.text;
        wine.vintage = [[self numberFormatter] numberFromString:self.vintageField.text];
        wine.timeStamp = [NSDate date];
        wine.rating = [NSNumber numberWithInt:self.ratingControl.selectedSegmentIndex];
        wine.partnerRating = [NSNumber numberWithInt:self.partnerRatingControl.selectedSegmentIndex];
        wine.varietal = self.currentVarietal;
        wine.tastingNotes = self.currentTastingNotes;
        wine.dateTasted = self.currentDateTasted;
        wine.tastingLocation = [[ReferenceDataAccessor defaultReferenceDataAccessor] addEntityForType:TASTING_LOCATION 
                                                                                             withName:self.currentWhereTasted];

        id type = [[ReferenceDataAccessor defaultReferenceDataAccessor] entityForType:WINE_TYPE 
                                                                          withOrdinal:self.typeControl.selectedSegmentIndex];
        wine.type = type;
        NSError *error;
        NSLog(@"Saving %@",wine);
        if (![self.managedObjectContext save:&error]) {
            [Utils showAlertMessage:@"There was a problem saving your wine; try restarting the app" withTitle:@"Problem saving"];
            NSLog(@"Error while saving new wine %@, %@", error, [error userInfo]);
        }
    }
    else {
        NSLog(@"ERROR - someone is calling saveWine with invalid info!!");
    }
}

Code for addEntityForType:withName::

-(id)addEntityForType:(NSString *)type withName:(NSString *)name {

    if ([Utils isStringBlank:name]) {
        return nil;
    }
    id existing = [[ReferenceDataAccessor defaultReferenceDataAccessor] entityForType:type withName:name];

    if (existing != nil) {
        NSLog(@"%@ with name %@ already exists",type,name);
        return existing;
    }


    NSManagedObject *newEntity = [NSEntityDescription insertNewObjectForEntityForName:type 
                                                               inManagedObjectContext:self.managedObjectContext];

    [newEntity setValue:name forKey:@"name"];

    NSError *error;
    if (![self.managedObjectContext save:&error]) {
        [Utils showAlertMessage:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"There was a problem saving a %@",type] withTitle:@"Database Probem"];
        [Utils logErrorFully:error forOperation:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"saving new %@",type ]];
    }
    return newEntity;
}

I have no idea why my app's memory locations aren't being symbolocated, but the code paths lead to only two manavedObjectContext save: calls. The time this happend, addEntityForType was called all the way through, creating a new object for the "whereTasted" entity, before the final save: on the entire wine object.

When I go through the same procedure again, it works fine. This leads me to believe it's something to do with the app having been run for a while when adding a new location, but I'm not sure.

Any thoughts on how I can debug this and get more info the next time this happens?
