I did that on purpose, to see if Sid's was crashing like Lenny's was. And it is.

Um, it's a segfault in the application. How is that different?
NOTHING else is crashing this way. So it isn't the kernel.

Yes, several in the error.log

Tthe debian kernel does not boot at all, even after reconstructing the
initrd a few times, so no, I won't, since there's no point.
How about addressing the issue instead of blaming me?
Don't take this the wrong way, but when the only application that's
crashing in such a way takes down my machine when restarts, and I get
blamed for it, that rather ticks me off, especially when I didn't
build it myself. I'd understand if I had done so - in fact, I wouldn't
be writing in a bug report, I'd suck it up and deal with it.
