I had the same problem recently with vmware3 on -current, and I worked 
around by running the configuration wizard as root. No bash-coredump 
this time. I moved the files to my own home-dir, and edited some obvious
path settings. From there, I could continue as usual installing a guest OS.

However, I don't know the source of the problem :-(. The wizard used to
work OK, at least with vmware2 on -stable.
