I'm confused: this isn't a crash, this is SIGINT.  SIGINT is the
signal produced by C-g in Emacs.  And since you pressed C-g, it's
quite expected to get a SIGINT.

Is it possible that this is a result of Gnus running some async code
behind your back (off an idle timer), and thus your C-g interrupts
that Gnus code?
