[Segmentation Fault while proxing Request to home server]

We're having the following authentication scenario for Wimax User 
Authentication :

ASN --  EAP/TTLS ---> 2 freeradius used as proxy --> 2 freeradius home 

AAA is fine when both home servers are up,but when one of them or both 
of them are dead, we're having the following logs on the proxy :

rad_recv: Access-Request packet from host a.b.c.D port 10008, id=117,

Segmentation fault

And then the proxy radius dies.

This happens each time at the fifth try while trying to send the request 
to a dead home server.

Regular logs gives that
Nov 18 01:37:46 vma-prdaut-08 radiusd[11028]: Marking home server 
a.b.c.d port 1812 as zombie (it looks like it is dead).

I know I should give a gdb trace to help, but since this is production 
server, it might take some times to give the trace.

Do you have any idea to what it could be related ?

Environment is the following :
FreeBSD 8.0/ Freeradius 2.1.10 compiled on threaded perl for snmp script
