Public bug reported:

I am running Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS, upgraded from 6.06 LTS.  At intermittent
times, snmpd dies with a segfault.  Once I restart it, snmpd behaves
normally, but will eventually die again.  The interval between starting
snmpd and having it die by segfault can be as small as an hour and as
large as 3 weeks.  I have a backtrace from the most recent segfault,
which I am attaching.  The version of snmpd and libsnmp15 used to
generate the backtrace is 5.4.1~dfsg-4ubuntu4.3, which is currently in

I originally thought that this was part of bug #200614, as I was seeing
the same problem.  That is why I am using the hardy-proposed version of
snmpd, is because I thought it would fix the segfaults.  However, the
fix for bug #200614 does not fix this segfault problem for me; when I
brought it up in the bug (bug #200614 comment 18), I was told that it
was probably not related (bug #200614 comment 19), and that I should
submit a new bug, which I am doing now!
