That backtrace is different. This time, the crash is definitely not from Exiv2.

You can ignore this. It doesn't do any harm. It means that Exiv2 has detected
something wrong with the metadata structure in the image. But Exiv2 can work
around this just fine.

For a start, just run the exiv2 command line tool over your images and if it
crashes, you should be able to see which image caused the problem:

$ exiv2 -pa *
