We have no idea.

Correct. But it clearly is also very rare.

As I said in the other thread, the code around the area in which the 
crash occurred has changed substantially in the last few releases. So 
while upgrading may not fix the problem, there is a good chance that it 
will and if it doesn't then we'll get better data points to help us 
track down the problem.
