I'd suggest testing your code with valgrind for memory corruption
elsewhere. While virtually any bug is *possible* the above seems a
little improbable.

If it is happening, then you need to create a minimal test case, and put
it in bugzilla. Providing the backtrace would also be useful in case
other people can't reproduce the problem using your test case.
