To trigger the crash I picked the second file out of the five files in the lastfiles vector. (But this happens with the first and with the last entry the same way.)
This operation effectively should move the 2nd entry to the 1st position.

The implemented logic in LastFilesSection::add removes the 2nd entry because of the match and inserts this FileName instance at position 1.

IMO the assignee (the new 1st slot of the lastfiles vector) hasn’t allocated the memory for private member d when the assignment operator is called - instead it is zero filled at that point.

I’m not so familiar with C++ internals. Perhaps the constructor wasn’t called or a wrong one or the move assignment constructor should care for it. Perhaps it is the implementation of the vector?
