Thanks for your report! To achieve the best/quickest
possible result, could you also:
1. Try a previous version
2. File your bug report with the 7zip project
3. Get a gdb backtrace out of the coredump

I'm sorry but I don't have time to do it all right
now. I will look into it at the first opportunity,
