Segfault with Grease Pencil and camera on a path
Confirmed, HighPublicBUG


System Information
Operating system: Linux 5.2.13 (also happens on Windows)
Graphics card: AMD Vega RX 56 (AMDGPU driver)

Blender Version
Broken: 2.80

Short description of error

Rendering using the command line fails with a grease pencil object and a camera on a path on Cycles.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Download this blend file:

  1. Render from the CLI: blender -b GPencil_CLI_segfault_bug.blend -f 1 -X -o //test.png
  2. Blender will segfault just before writing the output file

Deleting either the grease pencil object or the path makes it render ok.

@Clément Foucault (fclem) I have checked and in the render the value of lb is null in ListBase *lb = &rdata->ob_curve_cache->disp; inside function DRW_curve_batch_cache_create_requested()

When render grease pencil, it used the DRW_render_object_iter() function, but I not sure if we could add a modified version of the function (or pass a parameter) to only render OB_GPENCIL objects.
