The bug is apparently tighted to SSE processor extensions. It is possible
why you are not seeing the segfault on your other machines? What processor
are in each system? There has been a fix committed in head for this issue
and it has solved the problem for me in my quick 2 minute test this morning.
If you would like I can give you my uninstall and build scripts that I use
to make sure my system is clean for a new build. The log you attached looks
very similar to what I was seeing before the segfaults but I am no expert
and I wouldn't take my comments authoritatively.
