Do you have GLib 2.25.12-1 from experimental, which is known to be crashy
If not, then something else must be causing the segfaults. If you're able to
get a backtrace from something crashing
(http://wiki.debian.org/HowToGetABacktrace) it'll probably be useful
information for developers; if reportbug is among the things that crash,
it's possible to use any other email program, although the resulting bug
report will need more input from you (see http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting).
