This has been around for a very long time. The (Aleph Armlinux) release I did
Dec 2000 had this. Update-menus would (consistently) segfault during
installation, but at some point during the install it always went away. It
was as if the problem was masked/fixed by some other bit of software being
installed, but of course I never worked out which one it was. I was rather
hoping it had fixed itself in the intervening 18 months - obviously not.
