Sorry, you'll have to dig into that one a bit deeper yourself, since it
doesn't crash for me, even on a (Fedora 21 beta) i686 setup.

Maybe you could install debuginfo for glibc and see what is being
passed to printf that seem to cause it to crash.

Are you sure you are using the git master sources?
The backtrace looks like it is using the system installed
