Erek - most of these reports seem to be coming from FreeBSD users like
myself (maybe I also saw an {Open, Net}BSD one in the -devel archives
recently, too), with the crash at:

        905                   if( patrn->psPatCase[0] == Tc[T-Tx] )

I posted my bt a bit ago to this list; if you like I can provide
additional information.
