You need to be more patient -- you left around 80 minutes between your
original mail and this ping. Remember that not everyone is awake and
online at the same times as you are, nor can they be expected to drop
everything to reply to your mail.

I'm afraid that "gdb --args xl -v restore SAVED" works fine for me.

I presume that running under gdb perturbs timings or memory layout etc
to expose a previously latent bug.

gdb has given you the line numbers of where the segmentation fault has
occurred -- why don't you investigate further?
