Why do you consider (2) a blocker? Not saying it's not important, but there
are eight other open tickets with segfaults. Some are more esoteric than
other, but I don't see why for example #1713 and #1808 are less important
than this one.

#1522 provides a patch that fixes a segfault by the way, could use a review.
