I think a good next step would be to resolve why rebuilding packages
locally seems to work around the problem for Steve but not for you.
Which package(s) exactly are you each rebuilding locally and installing
from the local build? In particular, the *_all.deb ones as well or only
the *_powerpc.deb ones? If the answer is 'both' for Steve and 'only the
latter' for Hideki-san, the problem is most likely an endianness issue
related to the database it's trying to load when it crashes.
