The main thing is to provide enough information in the ticket so the dev 
has a chance to fix it. Many people just say its not working without 
providing the information necessary to fix the bug. In this case a 
backtrace when the backend crashes would be useful. If you can get 2 or 
3 and check if they are all similar even better. If possible provide a 
series of steps that is guaranteed to trigger the crash or at least what 
you was doing to trigger the crash. The last part of the backend log 
could be useful as well.

If it looks like you have at least made an attempt  to try to help a dev 
to track the bug down you are more likely to get a favorable response. 
At least thats the theory :-)
