We can certainly try that. If you build a debug bundle (make the
components with the debug flag, and instead of 'make install' run
pkg/mac/, you should then be able to run it under GDB
with something like:

gdb ./

and then use 'run' to start it. When it crashes, lets start by using
'bt' to get a backtrace and take it from there (yes, it'll look like the
original one from the crash report, but they're often misleading when
generated from release builds).
