crash / bad alloc when loading raster with only nodata values

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:Yes Copied to github as #:19527


When loading a geotiff with only nodata values (e.g. the nodata value is set to 0, and the tif is full of 0's), qgis crashes (when started with "qgis <therasterfile.tif>") gives a "std:bad alloc" error in a small window (when loading the raster from a running qgis).

Attached is a test file (geotiff of 10x10 pixels, all zero's, nodata=0)

This is the output when qgis is started in the console with the offending raster as argument ("qgis emtpy_test_small.tif"):

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
  what():  std::bad_alloc
Aborted (core dumped)
