Your file worked alright for me. However, removing the 1st (top) stave from another file caused crash to me aswell. The file which crashed was a MIDI that I've imported into the nightly and edited.

Using MuseScore 2.0 Nightly Build (792e398) - Windows XP SP3

There is a problem with the first stave. There are tempo instructions for all the score. I think that it is not good because of two cases. One is the impossibility to remove 1-st stave. Other is that information about tempo is usually placed also into lower part of partiture (score). My teacher was not content that musescore has no possibility to display tempo information there.

My suggestion:
What about assign special track for score information as tempos and its copy let display in defined places. Definition could user make by sign that could be similar like line break or stave spacer.

My experience:
The crash came even if all the tempo text I deleted. Finally I moved the first stave to bottom and made it as small. In menu - Style - Edit general style - Size - set size of small staves to 10% so that it is just line on bottom of score (as you can see in attachment).

The question of how to make tempo marks appear automatically on staves other than the first is a good one, but kind of seaprate, and probably worth opening a new issue (feature request) for. BTW, you can of course place additional tempo markings as plain text on any staff you like, so it's not like MuseScore *cannot* produce scores in that format. The feature request would be to provide a way to automate that. And actually, this is probably worth discussing in the feature request *forum*, to arrive at a consensus as to *how* this might work, before opening an actual issue.

Marc Sabatella, You are probly right. But imagine me. I am incarnation of confusion. I am not anble to keep order in larger documents. Therefor I need and very welcome technical support of it. Very easily I forget to correct the copy of changes in editing. I think You are right with the feature request.
