I get an error, when running the following program compiled with iford 19.0 without any compiler options on linux.

This looks like a bug in Intel Fortran compiler, you should submit a support request at the Intel Online Service Center: https://supporttickets.intel.com/?lang=en-US
The Fortran standard clearly states TO is an INTENT(OUT) dummy argument in MOVE_ALLOC intrinsic subroutine, so you should not have to add the deallocate(stack) instruction prior to invoking this procedure..
This looks very similar to a regression in 19.0.0beta from the earliest point one, which was reported right away, but made it into an update of the beta, the 19.0.0 release, and the first update, 19.0.1, which I commented upon here:
Intel Support notified me on Jan 17 that apparently that bug is fixed in the upcoming 19.0.2, so let's see.
I tested the program with ifort version 188.8.131.52, the bug is not fixed yet and gives the same error as before.
Do I have to submit a support request if I only want to report the bug, or is this forum thread sufficient.
