Sorry all, seems this is something wrong with my local setup. Though
I've no clue what would cause these issues. If anyone has any ideas
for me to try I'll try anything to get back to where I can work on
fixing real issues rather than strange crashes that are only on my
system :) I'll keep digging I guess.
