Nifty, memory corruption?

#0  0x804a8f2 in timeadd (a={tv_sec = 911885363, tv_usec = 855715}, b={
      tv_sec = 1073958349, tv_usec = 136466629}) at comm.c:942

 911885363 = 0x365a4433         6\nD3

Don't suppose your re-rolling function can output that sequence?

and your b.tv_sec/b.tv_usec look like stack pointers.  What compiler do you
