4.4.2 Crash when loading an empty folder

If I try to start GZDoom 4.4.2 using the -file parameter to load an empty folder, it crashes.

Why would I do that? I have a folder that I regularly use for quick checks of things and I move stuff into and out of it all of the time If I'm testing stuff, I start GZDoom with a shortcut that loads the folder. Most of the time there is something in it, but occasionally there isn't. I just happened to use that shortcut when firing up 4.4.2 for the first time.

It's easily repeatable though. The attached crash report was generated by dropping a folder that I created on my desktop onto ZDL and launching from there.

Putting almost anything in the folder seems to avoid the crash but there must be some actual data. Just having another empty folder inside the first one (e.g. an empty maps folder) will still cause the crash.
