Comment (by robe):

 I did a test putting in notices and (had to put in error too because the
 crash prevented me from seeing the notices). Anyrate as far as I can tell
 -- it starts failing in parse_gml_data function  r4734  -- line 846

 Which looks like

 if (!strcmp((char *) xa->name, "pos")) {

 So I guess its either the strcmp or whatever the xa->name is returning.
 For what its worth none of the other code I saw in our codebase does a

 strcmp((char *) ... in one step.

 They always seem to declare the variable char * and use the variable,
 though that may be a stylistic feature rather than for some fundamental
