Open a project
Add a vector layer
Right-click > Save as
1/ choose output format as MID/MIF for e.g.. Don't choose output name nor directory and save. You got a successfull message bar. if u had checked "add to map canvas", then you got a warning message bar concerning the incompatibility of the file format.
2/ Choose SHP for the file format and without filling a name, save. You get the same successfull message bar but if you had checked "add to map canvas", QGIS crashes.

When saving a raster layer, the ok button is greyed till you fill the file name. This should be used for vector layer, too, I think.
