The basic x86_64 Arch VMs are the SAME VM, just moved from one box to the other
(one on my laptop copied from my backup server where it was originally
installed). The packages are identical on the VMs except on the first I had
rebuilt libxcb and glibc with options(!strip) and CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -g".

I will rebuild Trinity and update both VMs and then give updated .kcrashes for
each. If 2.13-3 works fine and 2.13-4 causes the crash, it just points to some
unintended consequence in the update. I'll rebuild, update both and report back.
But if Baho is also seeing something -- the plot thickens.
