Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:11092


When I try to load a symbol-style *.qml file which doesn't correspond whith the relevant layer => QGIS crashes.

I can reproduce the same behaviour when I create a symbol-style file based on a PostGIS layer.

1. Load a [[PostGIS]] Layer and create a symbol-style *.qml
2. Save this [[PostGIS]] layer as a shape-file.
3. Load the created symbol-style file to the shape-file
4. QGIS also crashes.

When applying a qml from one layer to another layer the result will be undefined. That said QGIS should never crash, but rather gracefully warn you of the situation. I will look at how we can address this.
