I have the same outcome, but I don't know if it's the same cause.
Anyway, I found aptitude segfaults, when the active uid cannot read some 

$ whoami
$ su -c 'touch /etc/apt/preferences.d/test'
$ aptitude search nouveau
(works fine)
$ su -c 'chmod -r /etc/apt/preferences.d/test'
$ aptitude search nouveau
Segmentation fault

Maybe you have the same problem?
But I use stable, not testing.

Regards, Gert
