If it had been a crash somewhere within myth I could understand why 
you'd post it here (or as you realised the -devel list) even if you'd 
posted it to a linux list the fact of tainting the kernel (presumably 
with proprietary video drivers) would mean a general lack of interest in 
the problem.

I looks like it crashed trying to allocate memory, so quite likely 
something else has corrupted memory, or you might have a hardware fault 
developing, or it might be "one of those things".

Unfortunately I suspect that's what you'll have to do.
