I don't see that as a showstopper to a major/minor bump; these are always
bug fixes that can be addressed.

What would be nice is if we could modify the test framework itself, perhaps
fatal v.s. fail&continue flavors of all tests, to encourage the appropriate
and proper logic in all test cases.

But a segv to a test suite is usually a fail, so it's pretty unambiguous :)
