Maybe memory is being trampled badly and it's just a coincidence that it
segfaults in the opendir().
>From the malloc() manpage:
Recent versions of Linux libc (later than 5.4.23) and GNU
libc (2.x) include a malloc implementation which is tun
able via environment variables. When MALLOC_CHECK_ is
set, a special (less efficient) implementation is used
which is designed to be tolerant against simple errors,
such as double calls of free() with the same argument, or
overruns of a single byte (off-by-one bugs). Not all such
errors can be proteced against, however, and memory leaks
can result. If MALLOC_CHECK_ is set to 0, any detected
heap corruption is silently ignored; if set to 1, a diag
nostic is printed on stderr; if set to 2, abort() is
called immediately. This can be useful because otherwise
a crash may happen much later, and the true cause for the
problem is then very hard to track down.
Maybe this helps you track down the problem.
