AW: server crashes with eap/tls after crl update

it's possible that the radiusd crashes on the next authentication - i only noticed that it runs for a few seconds up to some minutes and then crashes with a seg fault. But I wondering why I don't see any incoming requests when running "radiusd -X" before the seg fault. That would imply that radiusd crashes before it writes the first debug message.

my test setup is: freeradius 1.1.6 compiled against openssll 0.9.8e.
the system is RedHat EL4 with the latest updates and kernel
EAP-TLS is implemented and works fine, so does the CRL.
My problem is as follows: the HUP works but radiusd segfaults at the
first authentication after the HUP.
Now I'm in the process of performance and stability testing. if this
version shows the same outstanding level of performance shown by the
bleeding edge I'll keep it, otherwise I'll consider taking the risk of
