Hey Peter,

I don't have specific knowledge of this problem, but I can say that  
it would be quite hard to track down with this amount of info.  If  
you can describe a reliable way to cause this crash, preferreably in  
the form of a Pd patch, it would be much easier to fix.

This would be a good thing to file in the bug tracker, so that people  
can add their info to it:
