I can't find anything obvious that is wrong in the code of the top 3 functions of the stack trace.
One thing to try is if pathv_to_linear_and_cubic_beziers is OK if the argument is a PathVector with an empty Path in it.
PathVector pv;

Windows build is broken so cannot try it right now.

Perhaps this call
void PathManipulator::_createControlPointsFromGeometry()
    Geom::PathVector pathv = pathv_to_linear_and_cubic_beziers(_spcurve->get_pathvector());

If the _spcurve has been deleted by someone else, the _spcurve->get_pathvector() will return a corrupted pointer and will crash the program on first use in pathv_to_linear_and_cubic_beziers.
