Linux driver crash on swapchain creation with incomplete create info

I’m not very familiar with Vulkan, so I’m following a tutorial. I have a habit of running the program as I’m making changes, even when I know it’s not going to run. I’m creating a swapchain with an incomplete struct but instead of crashing the program, it crashes the graphics driver and in turn Xorg, booting me out. I don’t think that’s supposed to happen. I tricked my friends into running it on Windows with the same graphics card model and it returns an error value properly there.

Using driver version 396.54 with GTX 970

Okay, I think it happens when you give a null pointer as the previous swapchain pointer.
