Wow, while I appreciate everybody has limited time I don't consider 20 attempts to find the 
source of a bug a lot...

Someone will have to do the work. And at this point you are the one with the data that fails :)
Others have offered to help but we will need some input file which reproduces the error.

However before going that route, have you checked whether the trace file has any useful 
information ?
Here's a link that explains where you can find the tracefile
It's likely it contains a guile backtrace of the failure.
