please report the bug in gnome bugzilla :
  product = GStreamer
  module =gst-plugins
attach the patch there
put a name like : [PATCH] [snapshot] segfault in signal handler
and finally, add PATCH to keywords

yes, i know, it's a borring process. but patches sent to the ML has
great chances to be forgotten/never applied/...

thanks for your patch btw
