I am seeing a crash which I think directly relates to this patch:

(top) r

Environment has been stepped on:

(top) p __environ[0]
$4 = 0x6e0a73656f642042 <Address 0x6e0a73656f642042 out of bounds>
(top) x/s __environ
0x9fa370:        "B does\nnot support any others.\nTo see a list of
the character sets GDB supports, type `set charset <TAB>'."

Still digging into the cause ...
