Being fat and taking forever to build.

Perhaps what would be best is package up .5 including patches for a
PPA, test whether that also exhibits the crash and if not look into
shipping .5 as an update.
If it still has produces the crash we'll have to look for the patch
causing trouble anyway (though from a quick glance the other day
nothing seems particularly related).
