Recent changes to the head and [56] STABLE *may* fix the problem.
These just fix memory leak while the symptom rather seems to indicate
use-after-free, so I'm not sure if these really solve the problem;
however, the fix indeed affects (either good or bad) the same code
path that caused the problem shown in the PR, so it may happen to fix
this problem via some non trivial side effect.
