Ah, I see.  It wasn't clear to me that this was a known issue.  I thought
your response was more of a "well if you want help, give us a backtrace".  I
didn't realize there was some existing context for knowing this was in the C
code.  At least I didn't realize it.  That is why I was puzzled since the
debugging page specifically talks about crashes and this wasn't a crash.

I'm a bit confused.  According to the link you gave me, ticket #3720 was
closed two years ago.  If I dig up debugging information, is there an open
ticket I should report it to?  I couldn't find a way to search the existing
tickets (which seems a bit odd in an of itself).
