Dragging slide master from one window to another causes instability.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. New > Presentation
2. Show > Slide master
3. New > Presentation
4. Show > Slide master
5. Drag slidemaster from slideoverview in doc1 to main area in doc2.
New slide master appears in doc2.
6. Drag slidemaster from slideoverview in doc1 to main area in doc2.
7. Drag slidemaster from slideoverview in doc1 to main area in doc2.
8. Select slide master 2 in doc2.
9. Drag slidemaster from slideoverview in doc1 to main area in doc2.
Program alters the mouse pointer to a wait-pointer. No new slide master appears, but some actions are possible. Program seems unstable. No new slidemasters can be dragged.
Nothing happens when dragging master the second time.
Program changes mouse pointer to busy after step 9.
A new slide master after every dragging.

GDB trace of crash with master
It crashes for me at step 9.
The "Nothing happens" is actually "the new slide master is overwritten by the dragged one". You can see this with a template that has different slide masters and you drag different ones.

I found a easier way to reproduce the crash:
1. Open presentation 1 and go to Slide - Master slide
2. Open presentation 2 and go to Slide - Master slide
3. Drag master slide from presentation 1 to presentation 2 ( to the main area )
4. In presentation 2, select the second slide ( added in step 3 )
5. Repeat step 3

I found another way to reproduce this crash:
1. Create a new impress document
2. Go to View - Master slide
3. In the sidebar, go to Master Slides and double click on any master slide template -> new master slide is added
4. Drag second slide from the slide pane to the main area.
