Aside from "don't do that then" (/dev/null is not a directory and you can't move files to "inside" it, just like you couldn't use /dev/ttyS0 to send trashed-files to a serial-port-attached-paper-shredder), this shouldn't crash dolphin.

Confirmed on X11/FreeBSD (Frameworks 5.82)
Comment 2 Nate Graham 2021-07-08 13:12:17 UTC
Yeah this definitely seems like a "Don't do that" situation. :) But indeed, it should not crash if you do.

KFilePlaceEditDialog: Always preserve previous icon

When the original item's url is trash:/, m_iconButton wasn't
instantiated since isIconEditable() will return false. If the url is
edited to point somewhere else, isIconEditable() will return false,
making the check in KFilePlaceEditDialog::icon() fail to guard access
to m_iconButton which points to nullptr. This crash can be seen by
trying to change the "Trash" entry's location in Dolphin's Places panel.

This patch makes it so that m_iconButton is always instantiated to
prevent the crash and also to always preserve the original icon before editing.
