Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
Timers::Cleanup () at

Happens every time, on two different machines.

I'm sorry, can't do that.
However, since it happens on two distinct machines (both running on
slackware 12, one of which is almost unmodified after the OS was
installed), chances are that a clean install of slackware 12.0 is enough
to reproduce the failing tests (and the segfault). In case you have an
unused machine lying around somewhere, you could try installing
slackware and see if you can reproduce the problem.

And if there are any other tests that I can perform for you, I'd be
happy to.
