>> Package: xbmc
>> Version: 2:13.2+dfsg1-4
>> Severity: important
>> Dear Maintainer,
>>    * What led up to the situation?
>> Playing music in xbmc with visualizer enabled.
>>    * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
>>      ineffective)?
>> Setting visualizer to 'none' appears to avoid the crash.
> Does it happen with all visualizer plugins or with just one particular?
> Could you please install xbmc-dbg and libav-dbg to have both XBMC and
> Libav debug symbols as well when creating coredumps?
> From the logs it looks like a memory handling problem.
> Could you please run xbmc in Valgrind like and collect the errors?:
> valgrind valgrind --trace-children=yes -- xbmc

Many memory handling issues have been fixed in Kodi since then, most
likely this is gone, too.
Please reopen if it still occurs.
