Comment(by pramsey):

 So, why does this require a fancy function to unearth? Doesn't running
 SELECT 'LINESTRING(0 0)'::geometry;
 a couple times do it? Can you capture the crash in gdb and get a stack-
 trace? That would be a first hint of where things go off the rails (though
 it's pretty clearly a memory corruption problem, so it could be really
 hard to figure out).
