It looks like a segfault in libQtGui.so, so it could be a bug in that
library.  Or it could be an application using that library wrong.

If it's not deterministic, it could also be a hardware problem causing
random memory errors.

(I would like to know what "error 15" means in this context.)

It makes sense, when you don't think about it.
