another issue could be faulty memory. I have seen segfaults or other fatal 
signals sent to some processes in this case.

Does your system use memory with ECC?

Do other programs also segfault on this machine?

Please run memtest ( http://www.memtest.org/ ) for a few hours on your system 
and see if it finds any memory errors.

Kind regards,
