Aegisub crashes immediately after opening the context menu

Bug Description

I hit a similar problem in another distribution. I believe that this is related to the spell checking code (list available languages).
The same error occurs in Debian 10.0.0 (debian-live-10.0.0-amd64-mate.iso).
It should be mention that this bug doesn't affect Aegisub in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Run aegisub-3.2
2. Disable update checker if needed (first run only)
3. Press the context menu key

I suspect these components as the cause of the error:
a. libstdc++:
It may be a problem with Dual ABI.
However, it should also affect package in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, but it doesn't.

b. GCC:
Maybe this is caused by aggressive GCC 8 optimizations.
Maybe this is about some hardening flags (-D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS)?

c. Boost:
Aegisub may be not 100% compatible with the latest Boost. TUV doesn't even support Boost 1.69 OOTB. I believe that they are still using Boost 1.58.

gdb output:

I don't use Debian/Ubuntu on a daily basis. I used LiveDVD (ubuntu-mate-19.04-desktop-amd64.iso).

A similar error occurs in Debian 9 oldstable (debian-live-9.9.0-amd64-mate.iso) and openSUSE Tumbleweed (openSUSE-Tumbleweed-GNOME-Live-x86_64-Snapshot20190823-Media.iso).
In the second case, you have to manually install the 'myspell*' packages.
