Default Google Now Launcher (Google Search app) force closing

Is anyone having this problem, or has had it? The latest update of Google Search, the Google Now Launcher just force closes whenever I try to set it as the default.

I'm on the stock ROM latest update, and latest version of the app from the play store. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, and cleared cache and data, still no luck.

any thoughts?
