Bug Description

Given this yaml:

```
name: try-kiosk-x11
adopt-info: mir-kiosk
summary: Segfault on stage-snaps
description: |
  This shows snapcraft segfaulting on stage-snaps
confinement: strict
base: core18

architectures:
  - build-on: amd64

parts:
  mir-kiosk:
    plugin: nil
    stage-snaps:
      - mir-kiosk-x11/latest/beta
```

Snapcraft segfaults in `snapcraftcl pull`. The snap in `stable` channel is a `base: core20` one, which was suspect, but the `beta` channel is `core18`. Both cause a segfault.

I did a "s/adopt-info: mir-kiosk/version: test/g" change and built the snap successfully with "snapcraft --use-lxd"

Same results when using multipass. Any more details to add the how to reproduce?

Hmm I wonder if it kept the older revision around?

Will try again tomorrow and report back.

OK so trying this:

```
name: try-kiosk-x11
version: none
summary: Segfault on stage-snaps

  This shows snapcraft segfaulting on stage-snaps
confinement: strict

parts:
  mir-kiosk:

    stage-snaps:
      - mir-kiosk-x11
```

Fails as expected, because mir-kiosk-x11 is core20-based. But changing it to `/latest/beta` and rebuilding without cleaning will segfault again. After clean, it works correctly.

We should check the stage-snap change and cleanup and warn when the build-base used does not match that of the stage-snap

I can't reproduce the segfault with current snapcraft and packages in any if the described scenarios. Is this still a concern? If so, could you provide new information on how to reproduce?

@cmatsuoka you'd need a snap with one channel based `core18`, another `core20`, and switch between them without cleaning.

We don't currently have such a situation, so don't have an easy reproducer today.

Thanks, I'll prepare a couple of test snaps to reproduce this scenario.
