Why don't you get a good source level debugger like gdb
and see where and why it crashes:

compile with debugging turned on: gcc -ggdb will work for gcc
run the server under the debugger:
gdb bin/circle
gdb> run
....mud output....

then go crash the mud, gdb should catch where it died

gdb> where

to see a stack trace of where the mud died.

Ich habe Dinge gesehen, die ihr Menschen niemals glauben wuerdet. Gigantische
Schiffe, die brannten draussen vor der Schulter des Orion. Und ich habe
C-Beams  gesehen - glitzernd im Dunkeln nahe dem Tannhaeuser Tor. All diese
Momente werden verloren sein in der wie Traenen im Regen.
