Sometimes I test E25+ in new computers, and sometimes I have a crash during the wizard setup (why? don't know, last time i just plugged an USB mouse during wizard setup), in fact it seems a bit common, but my point is:

When wizard crashes, it immediately switches to an E desktop running, which is wrong because the setup didn't finish, so instead of starting E normally I think it should simply restart the wizard process

I just found on my tests machine an E crashdump which I think is related to wizard, so maybe can be useful: https://pastebin.com/VfBpWcFm

well it should not crash int her wizard... but fair enouhg point - it should go back to the wizard start and not an empty desktop or whatever...

Maybe, depending on where the crash is in the Wizard and what triggers it you could end up in a cyclic loop where everytime through the wizard it crashes and goes back to the start.

@simotek that's an important point to consider (and the worse situation of course), I don't know what is worse (an unable to start desktop, or an uncomplete / unfeatured desktop), maybe show a popup before that announcing that wizard needs to be started over and if the problem persists to report the bug?

In any case I wanted to mention that the times it happened for me it seemed to be a random crash (it doesn't repeats when I try again and the desktop finishes to configure correctly)
