hm, i'm assuming that because this happens very early, this is the
system dirmngr process that is segfaulting.

I've got this same version running on an amd64 system with libassuan
2.1.2-2 as well, but i'm not seeing these segfaults.

Can you send this bug report (or me privately, if you think it's
sensitive) the contents of /var/log/dirmngr/dirmngr.log ?

If that doesn't provide a useful hint, you might try halting the system
service and launching it by hand under strace (as the superuser):

 systemctl stop dirmngr
 strace -f -o /root/dirmngr.strace su - dirmngr -c '/usr/bin/dirmngr --daemon --sh'

if it crashes at that point, you can send on /root/dirmngr.strace.

If all of the above is fruitless, and you want to keep trying, can i get
you to rebuild the package with debug symbols (DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nostrip
should work) and install libc6-dbg and capture a coredump to get a

Thanks for the report,
