Thanks for the report.

Could you let us know the version of gnuchess in use. (Usually "gnuchess -v" 
or simply typing "gnuchess" in a terminal window will get this information).

Also I assume this is the version packaged with a distro, can you let us know 
distro and version.

I turned position in to epd
r3kb1r/pppb1ppp/2n2n2/1P3q2/2P5/P3Pp1P/3P1PP1/R1BQKB1R b Kkq - bm 1; id 1;

I'm unable to persuade the stock GNU Chess on Debian (6.2.5) to crash from 
this position with a few likely tries, it wants to play fxg2 when it is 
confident it will go on to improve its position.

It can sometimes be hard to reproduce a specific crash from a game, as it can 
depend on time controls, or may be something outside of the program.
