I've been getting random crashes (every 3-5 days) with when 
nothing is happening:

Oct 17 09:21:52 asterisk kernel: asterisk[2880]: segfault at 0 ip 
000000000043d269 sp 00007fcfb9219b60 error 6 in asterisk

even though nothing is happening. This is a lightly loaded asterisk 
server, and there are no calls:

[2009-10-17 09:09:53] NOTICE[28424] chan_sip.c: Peer 
'proxy01.sipphone.com' is now Lagged. (2129ms / 2000ms)
[2009-10-17 09:10:04] NOTICE[28424] chan_sip.c: Peer 
'proxy01.sipphone.com' is now Reachable. (1202ms / 2000ms)
[2009-10-17 18:38:11] NOTICE[3235] cdr.c: CDR simple logging enabled.

I've just grabbed today's svn and built it with DON'T OPTIMIZE and DEBUG 
THREADS. I assume this will get me a core dump in /tmp if there's 
another segfault. Is this what I need for a bug report?
