It's hard to trigger debugging too because it only seems to crash like a third or fourth of the times after I do reset(). The most helpful info I got sometimes is a warning message from gdb in after the reset() which says:

Thanks for all of your time and patience looking into this.

I have no idea why the backtrace is not identifying the spellcheck module or hunspell as the source of the crash. I'm beginning to question that it is. However, you said earlier you narrowed it down to a line of code in the spellcheck module.

I'm afraid I do not know how to proceed :(
