Crash on importing a brush shape with only white pixels

Is something not working like it should? Let us know.

1. Create a new image (32x32)
2. Paint all pixels with full white
3. Export image as PNG
4. Create (or duplicate) a brush
5. Import the previously exported PNG as the shape of the brush
6. BAM. Pixelmator crashes.

Desired Outcome
It's weird to have a brush that is completely transparent (white in brush shape means 0 alpha). But it should not crash the app. Most likely people will make this same mistake of assuming white is opaque mask, and they may lose unsaved progress.
