Neither of which have anything to do with upgrading from 0.6.3 to 0.6.4,
which is what others have reported triggered the segfaults, and in fact
there seems to have been a bug introduced, which was fixed in 0.6.6.
Let me reiterate: there was a bug reported which was not #81829. Please
stop pointing to #81829 as if I do not know about it.

0.6.4 did not segfault for me all of the time, either. It was not an
obvious sort of bug and depended on certain conditions.

Of course not; I don't know why you would think such a thing.
