Did you upgrade AS?  If so, did you remember to remove the old binaries
before you tried running?

The old AS binaries are in /usr/X11R6/bin.  The new ones go in
/usr/local/bin/, so you can accidentally get a mix of binaries of the two
versions.  I expect this could cause trouble, although I don't know why it
would segfault.
