Segmentation fault of GNU Emacs 21.3.1

Hi all,

today is one of the unlucky ones: My Emacs crashed! I'd never had such
behaviour before, Emacs kept always out of mischief, but with this
Emacs I sometimes - rarely - get a crash. :-(

It's the Emacs on my office PC installed from a
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 4 WS:

The back trace does not look very good to me...

Is there any change to get more information out off this core dump or in
future without using a debug version of emacs by installing the sources
compiling with debug flags?

Is this eventually a well known bug in emacs 21.3?


Regards
    Jochen.
