Can you explain the impact of this segfault?

The harm it does is adding to the release team's load if a new RC bug is
found in the newer version you're proposing.  Given the time constraints
that apply to reviewing each request, we must assume that this risk always
exists, so only packages that fix specific bugs will be allowed in now that
we've frozen.
