Thank you for your bug report, does it do it every time? Do you have extra warnings displayed on the standard output? I can't confirm the issue here...

Backtrace stopped: Cannot access memory at address 0x7fffffffbc48

Core seems to be corrupted. That would normally mean RAM / disk space / swap issue. Please recheck and attach a proper backtrace, if the crash happens again.
