It might be a problem in the test, but a segmentation fault could be a
signal of something more serious in the core on in the bindings.

>From the build history, this particular test does not seem to be randomly
failing but consistently failing since b32a719
, even if you reverted that single commit with no changes in the failure,
that does not imply that the test was broken.

Note that the test itself is passing.
