Description Miklos Vajna 2019-08-01 13:48:40 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1) Open the start center

2) Press alt-f11 to open the basic macro organizer

Expected results: window shows up

Actual results: crash

Linux dbgutil builds fail with this assertion:

Error: attempt to access an element in an empty container.

Objects involved in the operation:
    sequence "this" @ 0x0x1df5a80 {
      type = std::__debug::vector<int, std::allocator<int> >;

The "gen" backend is not affected.

git bisect says this is a regression from:
