if you check the man page on scanf:
d Matches an optionally signed decimal integer; the next pointer must
be a pointer to int.
You shouldn't try to put a short into an int. Always declare the correct
size for variables. Your segv is because scanf was trying to put an int
where it won't fit.
You will get the same result if you go off the end of an array.
