Yes, this is the kind of crash where the stack trace is probably not
very helpful, because frames have returned and/or new frames entered
an unknown number of times after the pointers went awry but before
the bad dereference that trips the fault.

Shot in the [mostly] dark:  I see TRAPCHLD embedded in one of the strings
in your backtrace.  Completion after "configure --" forks at least one
child process (says valgrind) so if you have a TRAPCHLD function it's
possible that it's corrupting something.  We do attempt signal handling
during pattern matching in order that deep recursive globs can be stopped
with SIGINT; it could be that needs a bit more regulation.
