I should have stated that this binary is a 64-bit one.

Maybe you have a 32-bit system?
No, I have a 64-bit system.
Just thinking about it later, could it be a permissions/ownership issue?
Just in case, try again, this time typing as root after having copied the file:
chown root:root /usr/bin/espeakup
chmod 755 /usr/bin/espeakup.

Success, it must have been permissions.
I have been switching between X and the console and so far, after a few hours, no crashes at all.

Thank you Didier for your efforts, a long standing issue solved for me, can we get the change included in debian?

Unfortunately, the modofication did not work, I copied it according to Didier's instructions but got no speech from speakup following the reboot.

Reverting back to the original /usr/bin/espeakup got speech working again.
