Hi Anathema and thanks for emailing!

If you don't get a quick response here, you might try emailing the authors 
of the program, in particular Nadia Heninger and Ariel Feldman.

A segfault is bad news, so hopefully they can take care of it.

You would also do well to file a bug within Debian's bug tracker; I don't 
see a segfault reported here;dist=unstable 
. If you're not used to reporting bugs in Debian, it's pretty simple; just 
sudo apt-get install reportbug, then type 'reportbug' and it will step you 
through the process. That way, other users can easily find the issue, and 
hopefully even work to address it!

Thank you again for the email, and I hope you're having a nice 
holiday season!
