Have you tried setting up a signal handler for SIGSEGV and calling
   kill(getpid(), SIGSTOP);
in the signal handler?  After attaching to the process with gdb, send
a CONT signal to the process from another terminal.  It's worth a shot.
(Is the process dying from SIGSEGV or some other signal?
Does the core file tell you?)

Can you get a tcpdump of the traffic leading up to the crash?
(Yeah I know it would be a lot)

If you can get a tcpdump, and then can replay the traffic and 
reproduce it, more of us can look at this.
