While I don't remember anything significant changng, I guess there might have 
been a change in the test framework code which could have exposed a bug in the 
library  not noticed in the older version or something.  I think we need stack 
traces from gdb (ie full symbolic information) to find out where the issue is.  
It's also strange that nobody else is seeing it.
I'm going to try installing a new debian system to see if I can reproduce it, 
but that's going to take quite some time, and I don't think the chances are 
very good (too many unknown variables).
