I guess you meant

  $ emacs -l .emacs

IOW, the .emacs file should be _loaded_, not just visited.  (I tried
both, just to be sure).

I don't have any such frame at this point.  I have a single frame
divided into 2 windows, one of them showing *GNU Emacs*, the other
showing *scratch*.

No crash here.  I tried both Emacs 26.1 and Emacs 26.2.

I'm guessing that maybe some additional files you have on your system
might be relevant.  Did you try reproducing outside your home
directory, after replacing "~marc/emacs/k" with something explicit,
and then using "emacs -q -l .emacs"?  Because this is what I did, I
cannot afford overwriting my personal .emacs file.

Can anyone else reproduce this crash?
