I have committed a change to CVS/git which should either fix the problem 
or give me some information on which to work out what's going on. Either 
way it should now longer crash.

You will notice that this has a complete new version number (1.55). This 
is because there has been an incompatible change in one of the internal 
APIs, not because any user or sysop will see anything different.

Developers need to see a separate announcement on the changes.
