Can you please try the 6.12.x series from Daniel's repository and try
with that again?

Upstream will certainly also address something for 6.10.59, which is the current
stable version, but ... it would need to be reproducible. Is it?

Also, I need to say that the debug information I found not so very usable.
Did you also have boinc-dbg installed? This would help.

Many greetings
