This one reached the Faq-O-Matic. I said there:

man or in this special case the binary from the package man-db uses a
database (you guessed it already, no?), which sometimes can get
corrupted. This database is updated once a week by
/etc/cron.weekly/man-db. You can rebuild the database at any time by
running man-db or mandb as root. If the segmentation faults do not
vanish, keep looking.

I you have suggestions/corrections about the Problems/stable section
of the FOM please feel free to email me at Jens@weh.rwth-aachen.de.
