Moneydance freezes after importing a QIF file

After upgrading to Moneydance 2019, I have noticed that the application freezes after I import a QIF file downloaded from one of my bank account.
The Moneydance window does not respond to any input, and I have to end the corresponding process.
After restarting, it seems the import did complete successfully, and all transactions are present. But there is new account named "Imported Bank Account" that is visible, with no transactions.

The bank is "Société Générale" (in France) :
Importing a file from another bank works fine.

I'm attaching the "errlog" file I found, edited for privacy, replacing the content of the imported transaction with [...]
As you can see, it contains a IndexOutOfBoundsException

    Hi Bertrand,

    There have been problems reported with QIF imports using Moneydance 2019.

    The "Imported Bank Account" problem had been resolved with an updated Preview Build 2019.2 (1860) (Freezing had also been mentioned by one of the users):

    You can check your version by going to HELP > About Moneydance. I would expect that you are running the stable build 1855 (The newer preview version is supposed to be available as "Stable" very soon).

    I believe that the only issue still remaining was that the importer wasn't storing the account pointer information.

    Good Luck,

    Tony (NOT from Moneydance Support)

    PS I'm sure that your attached errlog.txt file will be useful to IK support
