Is there some reason that you couldn't leave it running once you get
the crash?  If so, perhaps you could describe those reasons, and I
could try helping you overcome them.  Being able to look around in a
crashed session is important for making the debugging as efficient as
possible, given the sporadic nature of the crashes.

Well, if you find some reproducible recipe, it will be appreciated.
