I was hesitant to support the addition to the problem list as it might be forgotten, the noise kept reminding me :-) and it was useful data to see if the crash was consistent in some way. I wish there was a way to flag a test as keep it running, report results, but if it fails don’t flag it as such.

I have had no time to investigate, but my suspicion is it might be some method handle compilation bug rather than some memory corruption bug due to the buffer changes to support optimized comparison (the test writes to buffers to set up test data, then its just reads, there were no changes to buffer writes for this enhancement).
