You should be getting a core dump, so use gdb to produce some debugging
information that we can use.... also, send us some code. Without the code,
we really can't do much but guess at a solution.

If you don't know how to use gdb, learn. I know there are web resources
for learning it, but I'm not sure what they are... check the FAQ or WTFAQ,
I think that they are in there.

PS: Learn to quote.... please.
