The first thing I'd try is re-including the excluded modules.
If you no longer get the crashes, you can start narrowing in on which
one is involved.  If you still get the crashes, you'll have to start
looking at the core files.

I'm assuming you're not used to using a debugger on a core file, 
on the theory that you would have done that already if you were
comfortable with it.
