2.5.x are testing releases.  They are bound to crash, and when they do
we ask that you supply as much detail as posisble in order to best debug
it.  Can you reproduce the crash?  If so, what does it take to reproduce
it?  Your help in providing good instructions to reproducing crashers
will help the developers fix them.  Ignoring the problem just means that
once the stable 2.6 release comes out you'll probably still have the
same issue, unless someone ELSE has hit the bug and done the work to
help track it down.
