ii wsjtx 1.1.r3496-3 i386 weak-signal amateur radio communi

Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS

I run wsjt-x for jt65/jt9 mode contacts. I notice the application crashes when the Internet connection is interrupted during radio activity. In dmesg I see:

[ 3014.426977] wsjtx[3955]: segfault at 0 ip b68e6088 sp bfd241f0 error 4 in[b684c000+143000]
[ 3934.082878] wsjtx[4808]: segfault at 0 ip b68bd088 sp bfa4f430 error 4 in[b6823000+143000]

Since my Internet connection is via vectored vdsl which runs at frequencies of up to 17.5 MHz there is always a chance of transmitting on 20/30/40 meter causing a disconnection of the Internet.
