What I mean is that I think the crash you experience means there's a bug 
in the compiler because your backtrace showed it crashed inside the heap 
manager.  A typical sign after someone is using deallocated memory, or 
having buffer overflows.

I have fixed the issue with the RTL and submitted a patch: 
It was the same you wrote about some time ago.
