What probably happens is not that the terminal emulator crashes, but
that it closes because the shell exited (abnormally).  Try instructing
the terminal emulator to remain open after the process in the pty exits
(such as with tmux's remain-on-exit option), or using a tabbed terminal
emulator, to see this.

Try running zsh from another zsh instance.  If the nested zsh crashes,
the outer zsh will tell you that:

    % zsh
    tarsus% kill -11 $$ 
    [1]    17214 segmentation fault  zsh
    % echo $?

I'm not sure what to say about the rest of your email, so I'll leave it
to others on list.  Incidentally, what OS / distro are you on?
