Are you running some special kernel? The regular vanilla Debian
kernels do not report SEGFAULTS of user level programs by syslog

I might be misreading the message, with exim triggereing a segfault in
the kernel. Anyway if you did not make any recent changes to the
system software and I had to make guess I would point at either a
coruupted harddisk or hardware breakage.
