The issues is in sequencer_reassign_inputs_exec, error_msg is NULL when the following if-case is true:

if (!seq_effect_find_selected(
        scene, last_seq, last_seq->type, &seq1, &seq2, &seq3, &error_msg) ||
    BKE_sequence_effect_get_num_inputs(last_seq->type) == 0) {
  BKE_report(op->reports, RPT_ERROR, error_msg);

Since BKE_report tries to determine the length of the message with strlen() this results in a crash.

The solution is to only run BKE_report if the passed pointer to the error message isn't NULL. Either don't call BKE_report if error_msg is NULL or assign a descriptive message to it before calling BKE_report.
