strace still says:
--- SIGSEGV {si_signo=SIGSEGV, si_code=SI_KERNEL, si_addr=0} ---

i have to make a little change in the starter script to use gdb. the
script sets the environment to use all the outdated libs shipped with
the change is to add /usr/bin/gdb to the exec statement. that change has
(obviously) to be undone before running strace.
otoh this should not make any difference for this issue…

i asked other affected people to provide traces as well, but no response
