It appears to be an issue with HEAD.  I built that (on 64 bit, but
don't know whether that is significant) and got segmentation error on
startup.  Reverted to tag 2.6.3 and it is ok.  I had some problems
getting it to build after the checkout of 2.6.3, though.  I assumed

sudo make uninstall
make clean

git checkout 2.6.3

sudo make install
would do it, but it failed on the make.  Rather than messing about
trying to analyse it  I removed the src directory, repeated the
checkout and started again with ./

Also oddly I found I needed --disable-error-on-warning to get it to
compile on 2.6.3 which is a bit odd
So if anyone can tell me the proper technique to checkout a different
version and rebuild I would be grateful
