Xcode: Persisteng Segmentation fault:11 when using Firebase

I'm getting mad with

Command failed due to signal: Segmentation fault:11

When I use Firebase in my project.

I read multiple question here about this Xcode bug, but it's terribly persisent when using Firebase.

I tried many solutions like cleaning the project, rebuilding, disabling bitcode etc.

My code:

@IBAction func saveBook(sender: UIBarButtonItem) {

var arrayOfNames : [String] = [String]()
for i in 0 ..< 6 {
let indexPath = NSIndexPath(forRow:i, inSection:0)
let cell : LongNameTableViewCell? = self.tableView.cellForRowAtIndexPath(indexPath) as! LongNameTableViewCell?
if let item = cell?.textField.text {
self.ref.child("books").childByAutoId().setValue(["title": arrayOfNames[0], "author": arrayOfNames[1], "pages_count":arrayOfNames[2]])
self.dismissViewControllerAnimated(true, completion: nil)



As usually mentioned in similiar questions, this issue occurs when Xcode is for some reason unable to parse the code eq. variable types are ambiguous.

Although this is rather a workaround that a recommended fix, it worked for me:

self.ref.child("books").childByAutoId().setValue(["title":arrayOfNames[0] as! String, "author": arrayOfNames[1] as! String, "pages_count":arrayOfNames[2] as String!])

Obviously now Xcode shows warning that this kind of casting makes no sense, but fortunately this clears the error message.
