I see exactly the same issue in 3.2.2 (using the stable PPA). The crash log is the same (only the addresses are different).

Found a related bug report here:
Seems to be fixed, but I'll have to wait for the next LTS enablement stack (14.04.3) to check.

The temporary fix is to switch to UXA, as the acceleration method.

I don't experience this issue anymore on Ubuntu 14.04 with Vivid kernel and X stack from proposed updates repository. By the way, I never encountered this bug on Vivid, in the first place.
