PA doesn't seem to shut down, but rather crash completely, it does not
even seem to output an assert which would normally be expected.

As this is a crash, you need to get the output from gdb and get a solid
backtrace. There are debugging tips on our Community wiki page.

Also you are using 0.9.22, please try updating to PA 0.9.23

All the best
