Bug#85820: apt-cache leaks memory?

Package: apt
Version: 0.3.19
Severity: important

% apt-cache search smrsh
sendmail-doc - A powerful mail transport agent.
zsh: segmentation fault  apt-cache search smrsh
% apt-cache search apt-cache
zsh: segmentation fault  apt-cache search apt-cache

When I enable core dumps (ulimit -c unlimited) apt-cache generates 
128M core file.  I have limited the usage of virtual memory to 128M using
pam_limits, thus the magic round number. 

If I search for example 'mutt', all goes well, I get the results and there
is no core dump.  What gives?
