ORB detector Segmentation Fault - Python [closed]

Whenever I try to use the ORB detector like described in the tutorial I get a segmentation fault. To be exact, when I start this small script:

import cv2 as cv
im = cv.imread('butterfly.jpg', 0)
orb = cv.ORB()
kps = orb.detect(im, None)

I get this error in PyCharm:

Process finished with exit code 139 (interrupted by signal 11: SIGSEGV)

and this if I start in shell:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I am using Python 3.6.1, OpenCV 4.1.1 (built from source) and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

I also tried running it in gdb and backtraced it with these commands:

gdb -ex r --args python3 test.py

and got the following output:

Thread 1 "python3" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I do not understand much of it. I read that for debugging python you can use py-bt, but it did not seem to work for my version. If someone ... (more)

if you have got opencv4 why don't you use opencv 4.0 tutorial?

You are right, I should have! Problem solved, it should be cv.ORB_create() instead of cv.ORB()! Thank you @LBerger

@lars27, however, you should see a cv::Exception :

    kps = orb.detect(im, None)
TypeError: Incorrect type of self (must be 'Feature2D' or its derivative)

and not a segfault. please try on a simple cmdline (NOT from pycharm, it harms noobs)

No It's finished :

import cv2 as cv

import numpy as np
img = cv.imread('g:/lib/opencv/samples/data/lena.jpg')
o = cv.ORB_create()
kps = o.detect(img,None)

@berak Like I said in my original question, I did try it vie cmdline, output is stated above as well. No exception was thrown.
