    Do you still see this problem using the latest SVN sources? Does it happen for any arb and any geometry database?

    I am unable to reproduce this bug and even your bomb report seems impossible without modifying the source code. A null tolerance pointer is inconceivable as that's a global structure that is always present. The only means that comes to mind would be a corrupted stack or otherwise corrupted memory, or source code modifications.
