When dealing with segfaults like this, I usually run just that test in
--verbose mode, figure out what line it's failing on based on the
output, re-run the test with a local edit which makes it stop before
attempting the behavior that segfaults (performing the set up for me),
then run just the failing command in the debugger.

Something which simplified this process would be great. With some
tests, there's sometimes not enough output to determine exactly where
a failure occurs with a println-based binary search through the test.
