I saw exactly this behavior just last Friday afternoon.
After all of Python was recompiled with -g the bus error went away.

Thanks for pointing out that only complexobject needs to be compiled
with -g.  It didn't occur to me to try this, despite the location of
the bus error, because it was possible to exercise complex objects
interactively w. no problems.

BTW I don't know whether you were compiling N32 or N64.  In our
case N32 created the bus error.
