Jerome, if i provide a simple patch for DFB 0.9.25, could you please
rebuild the libdirectfb-udeb and see if the crash is fixed?
In this case we could backport the fix from DFB 1.0-rc2 to DFB 0.9.25:
would this be possible if fixes this chash?
Ok, i'll try to provide a patch ASAP, i'd really like to see this fixed.
Using different signals for cdebconf db saving and DFB vt switching is
good, but still cdebconf's signal handling mechanism may need to be fixed.
How does it need to be fixed? Won't using different signal fix the issue?
Using different signals should fix up this specific crash, but basing on
this BR  by colin watson cdebconf's signal handling mechanism is not
very robus and needs to be fixed.
If you have some time, could you please boot textual and send to
cdebconf SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2 signals, to see if it crashes?
