Some additional details:

- This bug is triggered only if "num-threads" setting in unbound.conf is higher than 1. Therefore a simple workaround is to reduce the amount of threads to 1 (which is the default).

- A description of the problem and a patch is available at https://unbound.net/pipermail/unbound-users/2012-September/002571.html (see the attachment at the end of that message). The patch does not apply cleanly against Unbound 1.4.16 but it is simple enough to fix it.

- The fix is committed in Unbound SVN repository at r2733. It will be included in the next Unbound version.

I am attaching a patch which applies cleanly against 1.4.16 to this bug.

summary: - unbound crashes with high query load
+ unbound crashes under high query load if num-threads > 1

This seems like a reasonable patch to include. If you could edit the bug to include the information required in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates#SRU_Bug_Template then I can get the fix into precise/quantal-proposed for testing.
