If it were just sometimes, I wouldn't have been able to trace it to libx264...

What I don't understand is why it only fails for libx264, but e.g. libx265 is fine.
Also, I don't see how the code, where the crash happens, can possibly crash:
>From do-rel.h [1]:
 85:      const ElfW(Rel) *relative = r;
 86:      r += nrelative;
111:            for (; relative < r; ++relative)
112:              DO_ELF_MACHINE_REL_RELATIVE (map, l_addr, relative);

gdb claims it crashes at line 111.
