If you have the devel packages installed, the crash report may offer to
submit a bug report. Having the backtrace from the crash, with the right
info, would help me pin down what might be causing the problem.

So far, I haven't been able to re-produce the crash. I can import the same
CD twice or new CDs, even after blowing away the CDDB cache. But I'm not
sure if they have any MusicBrainz info, since you suggested it might be
tied to that. I have libkcddb 20.04 at the moment, not sure if that version
might matter.

I'll keep poking at it, but the best thing you could provide, if able, is a
stack trace.
