I'm afraid I don't see why it would still crash.
You patched those places in menu.c where an event tile was
dereferenced. Now the code

  if (!title) {
      // we don't want any "(null)" titles
      title = strcpyrealloc(title, tr("No title"));
      EpgBugFixStat(12, ChannelID());

in cEvent::FixEpgBugs() makes sure that every event has a
non-NULL title. So where exactly does it crash?
