KiCad 6.0 Mac copy/paste hierarchical sheet causes crash

I have a schematic with nested hierarchical blocks. In one of the nested blocks I have a hierarchical block that is repeated 15 times. I modified the block and when copy/pasting the blocks, I could get 3 blocks placed, but the 4th would constantly crash KiCad. Duplicating the block had the same results. Going to do some more testing with a new design fresh in 6 and see if I run into the same problem.

The Mac problem report is quite long, but can add it if needed.

Edit 1: Just got a specific error “KiCad Schematic Editor Error: Unhandled exception class:St12length_error what:vector”

Edit 2: Issue created with attached project and screen recording of the problem.

please open a bug report on the bug tracker and attach the mac problem report. They may ask you for other info as well.
