Is that crash reproducible for you?  The backtrace doesn't give much of 
a clue to why it fails, so if it is reproducible running under Valgrind 
might help.

In general, the online update mechanism spawns threads that it doesn't 
properly join again before exit, which is a notorious problem with tests 
(that often run quickly enough to terminate soffice.bin while the online 
update check is still in progress), so I recommend to configure with 
--disable-online-update (which is the implicit default on Linux anyway, 
though).  But the backtrace here doesn't look like it is caused by that 
problem anyway.
