sorry to reply to myself (again) but i forgot some stuff/found some
better documentation,

from the documentation of the controlView method here

"For example, the subclasses of NSActionCell defined by the
Application Kit invoke this method in order to
send the NSControl a message such as updateCellInside:."

so that to conflict with the idea setStringValue: is doing something
wrong by calling the -updateCell method (ignoring the inside part
since either would lead to the segfault)...

another idea is that drawWithFrame:inView: could reset the
_control_view on exit but that seems counter to the documentation that
-controlView returns the view in which the cell was last drawn...
