Yes, I first rebuilt apt, and

  aptitude-run-state-bundle aptitude-segv.bundle

was still crashing, then applied the patch suggested at


and I no longer get any crash.

But I don't have a patched kernel, just the one provided by Debian,
and the crashes were almost 100% reproducible when "aptitude" was
run alone.
