I cannot reproduce any such problems with recent master (where only the 
known-problematic CppunitTest_sc_opencl_test crashes for me).

If you set "ulimit -c unlimited" the crashing tests should leave behind 
/cores/core.* files on which you can use gdb or lldb to generate 
backtraces for all the threads; that might give a clue.  (I think recent 
Xcode only includes lldb, so you might only have that.  Also, in my 
experience, quality of how gdb vs. lldb can handle any given core file 
on OS X seems to vary, for whatever odd reasons.)
